Welcome to Tropical band
To most people the phrase "tropical bands" bring a pretty clear picture to mind - a bunch of shirtless guys playing calypso music. But to experienced shortwave DXers those two little words express the most challenging and enjoyable part of the radio hobby. The phrase kindles memories of a DXer's best catches and favorite QSLs, of exotic stations, music and of early morning listening sessions. (Don Moore)
I like the "Tropical band" name for new 60m allocation. (OK1RP)

Once the WX improves enough to consider non-essential work, I intend to move the beacon antenna to the 160m/80m dipole mast about 20m away from the tower. This tends to have to come down for maintenance far less frequently and is a better place for it really. This mast is nearly 20m high but I'll probably just put the beacon antenna at the first guy point, about 7m, which is its current height.

May thanks to John for his effort in order to maintain the beacon for us.
