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.

E7 - Bosnia & Herzegovina on 60m by E77EBL

NEW COUNTRY: Bosnia- Herzegovina on 60m band

E77EBL was very active last night on the band. Thanks to Akadeemski for handing out an ATNO on the 60m band. We have to believe that he will be active even longer as there is many of us looking for him on CW...
