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)

David, NA2AA inform dxnews.com, that K2NG, NA2AA, K3SW along with PJ4LS and PJ4DX will be active from Bonaire Island in the ARRL DX SSB Contest 4 - 5 March 2017 as PJ4G.
They will be in M/2 Category.
The U.S. operators will be signing PJ4/Homecall before and after the contest.
Digital skeds for ATNO with PJ4 can be made with NA2AA via his QRZ email.
QSL for PJ4G via WA2NHA, LOTW.

David PJ4/NA2AA will put on this new one when he activates the island March 2, and 5th and 6th. He should be on after 0100z on 5357. He will spot on DX Watch cluster. David understands this is the JT65 channel where there is a lot of activity, but it’s the only channel the authorities have authorized. David may also be on just before his sunrise.
