QRV as DV5PO from a small village near Borongan in Eastern Samar since August 2008, previously operating from same QTH as DU5/ZL4PO. Population of the village is about 500, and I am the only westerner living in the village. Our home is right on the shoreline, only 40 metres from hightide overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean and inshore reefs. Antennas are TH6DXX tribander up 17M, plus dipoles for 80, 40 & 30M.
New homebrew 5ele 6M widespaced yagi going up very shortly. My preferred modes are CW with some SSB, in the bands from 80M to 6M. QRV most days looking for DX. I am operational on PSK31 & RTTY occasionally, 40M thru 10M as band conditions dictate. I also operate SSTV in Scottie1/2/DX modes on 14230KHz.
Please QSL to EA5GL with $2U.S. OR 1 CURRENT IRC and reply envelope.
No eQSL's please.
As far as I am aware, DV5PO is the only licenced amateur station operating from anywhere on Samar or Eastern Samar on HF. There are a few other DU5's on HF, but they are operating from Tacloban on the island of Leyte, about 4 hours by road from here.
My other interests include wine making, stamp collecting, photography. We have a seaside cottage available for visiting hams who want to operate from DU5 for a while. Email me if you are interested or would like to QSO (SKED) firstname.lastname@example.org
