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)

V5 - Namibia on 60m band by Dennis, ZS4BS

Hi all,

short flash news coming in order to remember that Namibia got also the 60m band allocation...

"Dennis, ZS4BS, tipped us off that Namibia had WRC-15 since their gazette update of 28th October 2016!"


(Thanks for remembering me to Paul, G4MWO)

HA - Hungary is back on 60m band...

Hi all,
The Hungarian telecoms regulator, NMHH ( The National Media & Info communications Authority – Hungary ) has published in the Hungarian National Gazette No.7 of 29 May 2018 an update to the National Frequency Allocation table 7/2015 on the use of frequency bands (X1.13), which initiates the WRC-15 Allocation of 5351.5 to 5366.5 kHz with 15W EIRP maximum power. Previously special 3-month permits were available, allowing 5350-5450 kHz at 100W, but these were discontinued in 2017. ( Tnx: HA3FLT, MRASZ, NMHH )
