I am researching and writing a series of articles on Tropical Band listening for the UK magazine 'Radio Active'
As well as an overview, websites and frequencies etc. I plan to conduct some email interviews with some of the prominent DXers in the area. (i.e.some fellow HCDX members!)
In the meantime there are a couple of general questions that I wonder if anyone can answer (replies will of course be credited in the articles)
1) When did the agreement to designate frequencies to Tropical countries actually occur? Is there a reference or a defined geographical region (longitude/latitude etc)?
2) What kind of receivers do listeners in tropical countries use to receive shortwave? I've not seen any shortwave receivers on display in the tropical countries that I have visited.
