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)

3Y0 - BOUVET ISLAND: From their website
The January-February, 2018 3Y0Z Bouvet Island DXpedition team has posted a propagation page on their website (http://www.bouvetdx.org). It has videos showing propagation predictions for that early 2018 timeframe. The tab for the propagation is in the header menu. You can choose time, frequency and signal strength for your QTH. This is based on the average sunspot numbers forecast for January, 2018.
