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.

VP5 on 60m band by Dave, W5CW

Hi all,

"telegraph news" coming from Dave, W5CW...

"I have been listening and calling most every evening and have not worked many stations on 60 meters. I arrived here at VP5 on Nov 21 and return home to Oklahoma next Tuesday. I will continue to check and call CQ occasionally each night beginning tonight around 00:30UTC each evening until I take the station down on Monday evening. I will be on 5405 CW and/or 5373 CW. 
Thanks Dave, VP5/W5CW"

Many thanks to Joe, W8GEX for sharing the info with us.
