The antenna that I used was a cubical quad, made by no less than Bro. Dan himself (DU9AOU). And DX stations were really amazed that though my transceiver was only a Yaesu FT 747- 100 watts, my signal was very strong. I became an active member of OSCAR (Organization of South Cotabato Amateur Radio).
Through the request of my JA friends, I also wrote several articles about the hobby which were featured in Japanese magazines.
In 1992, I met the Mabuhay DX Club on 10 meters...and we chatted every morning (PI time)..and established our friendship on the air. Among the first stations I met and became close to were AB6BG (Alex, now K6BG), AB6FX (Papa Boy, now K6FX), N6WJN (Ramir),AA6ZI (Frank), N6ZIP (Choy).
The good propagation only lasted for two years and we've lost contact since. When internet came, I am very happy that I am able to establish contacts with my friends again. The first friend that I met was WJ1P (Joel) and even before ICQ gang was formed, he graciously sent me news and updates on Ham activities in the US.
Now, he has given
me this space for my website...and I am really very grateful. I
featured a list of some ham
friends on the web. Also for some added information, I posted
the q-codes and z-codes
used in amateur radio.
