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)

Effective from 1st Jan 2017 please paper QSL via OM-bureau only.

Dutch 5MHz QSOs - RSGB Front Page News


Several Dutch stations have appeared on the 5MHz band in the erroneous assumption that 5MHz has become available in The Netherlands.

It isn’t, and won’t be until the middle of November at the earliest. The confusion arose in the way the law is applied in The Netherlands.
Following the announcement, the radio amateur frequency tables have to be officially adjusted and published and this has not happened yet.

Until that time, any contacts with Dutch stations on 5MHz are not, in fact, legitimate.

It is confirming what I reported in preview post regarding the PA permits on 60m band so need to wait...
