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)

4X - Izrael on 60m news by IARC

Israeli 60m permits now available on yearly basis

For several years Israeli Amateurs have had access to 8 three kilohertz-wide channels at 5 MHz by means of personal permits.

Permission was initially valid from the application approval date until mid March 2014. Permits are now renewable in April of each year.

Operation is on a secondary status with a maximum power of 100W PEP measured at the TX (not EIRP). All modes are available, but on specified channels. Split operation is not allowed.

For further details, see the Wikipedia 60 Meter Band page https://en.wikipediaorg/wiki/60-meter_band
