My Ham Radio Interests
I am retired and living a few months out of each year in the Philippines.

Some of my past working background involved work in medium market radio and television stations in Eastern and Western Oregon USA.

I have a reciprocal operating permit for operating a Class "A" station in the Republic of the Philippines.

Really like boat anchors receiving and transmitting equipment. Like to build certain crystal radio designs to see what long distance signals I can get.


Other Interests

I am an International Associate Member of PARA, the Philippine Amateur Radio Association.

Effective May 23, 2011, I was issued a reciprocal operating permit for the Philippines with the call DU3/W6QT. Many thanks to the NTC and the Philippine Amateur Radio Association for granting permission to operate ham radio in the Philippines.

Read the 5 comments after the break below.

Congrats on the Reciprocal DU Ticket.

Thanks Derek! That's quite rig you have there.

Thanks, I really lucked into it. It is a good bit of fun taking the operation on the road.

I hope you're busy racking up the contacts now! If you like VHF, try 6m which is half way between HF and VHF! We need some ops in DU3 to fill the gap. You will need some patience for that band though as it's not like HF. Hope to hear you on 50.110MHz soon.

Appreciate hearing from you George. I do like VHF, but my Icom 718 doesn't give me 6 meters and my other gear is just dual band 2 meter/440. Maybe an upgrade is in my future so I can enjoy what I'm missing!
