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)

5 MHz GB2RS News Transmission Time Change


Due to ongoing propagation changes, the team of  UK  5 MHz GB2RS Newsreaders have decided to revise the time of the Sunday afternoon GB2RS News bulletin in order to try and optimize reception conditions.
The new transmission time will be 1500 hrs UTC . Please that this is UTC and not local time, which is to cater for seasonal propagation and clock changes.
The transmission frequency remains unchanged at 5398.5 kHz USB.  It is hoped to commence the change from the 22nd January transmission.

(Many thanks to paul, G4MWO for sharing this information)
