On 6th of March 2013 I was sincerely honored to be able to change my callsign from DU7TET to DU7ET.
From what the Director of Region 7 told me it was the first two letter suffix issued in nearly 20 years !
Thank you Sir.
QTH is 11 km SW of Dumaguete city, we are 450m above sea level and 8 km from the ocean and have clear view from NE to SE and is overlooking Siquijor Island.
Home is 2 Bedroom (actually one bedroom and one radio shack hi hi) 1 Bath. 1600 sq m lot. 150m from the road. Excellant black fertile ground.
Radio: Kenwood TS-2000X, Amplifiers: Ameritron AL-572B and a Yaesu FL-2100Z. Antenna tuners: MFJ 986 and 989.
Antenna: from the amplifier a 3m RG-8 coax runs to outside of window which connects to a 9-1 balun and then about 30m of 450 ohm ladder to a 162m long delta loop , each leg is 54m and is supported by 3 coconut trees. Average height is 18m. Ladder line is connected to corner leg, highest tree (21m).I can use the loop on all bands 160 thru 10. I just installed an T vertical for 160. The loop was just to low for reliable dx work. The T vertical is 25m vertical and 2-16m horizontal wires. The vertical has 80 radials 6 to 25 m long. It has clear view of water from E to SE great for LP to NA.
