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.

3D2AG - Fiji Isl. on 60m band CW...

Did you worked Fiji Isl. on 60m band CW? If you are looking for anybody there then try 3D2AG !

OPERATING SCHEDULE: The 60m operating times are 0530 to 0700 UTC (For EU and USA) and 1000 to 1200 UTC (for USA) on 5358.5 / 5405 KHz CW mode.
If working 3D2AG between 0500 to 1200 UTC, please be patient especially on LB up to 20m as there is very violent local square-wave QRN (S9+ at times) from various domestic sources in the neighborhood. Sometimes this QRN is so bad that CW is not possible at all. 

(FIJI, OC-016): using IC-7300 / ICOM 706MKIIG / FT-757GX / TS-440S and Hustler 4BTV or home-brew OCFD 80-10m antenna, monoband inverted-Vees for 60m, 30m, 17m and 12m. On 160m, Inverted-L antenna on 18m high Spider pole. For VHF: 5-el Cushcraft A50-S Yagi on 6m and Cushcraft A144-20T 10-el yagi on 2m. For QRO low bands: ACOM 600S linear.

Beware of pirates! If in doubt of a QSO, please email me first.
