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)

WRC-15 Day-5, End of Week-1
Agenda Item 1.4 (5 MHz): Some progress was made during the course of the Friday morning session. The various African organizations agreed to merge their proposal resulting in a proposal of 100 Watts between 5350-5400 kHz which will be considered alongside other proposals.
Unfortunately other administrations are refusing to move from their position for a far smaller allocation or even NoC (No Change). As a consequence the meetings scheduled for Saturday morning have been cancelled pending feedback from various administrations back home.
