My small but complete station in Saigon Vietnam

Icom-718, Mfj 993b auto tuner, MFJ artificial ground,

Cleartone speaker and DSP.

(See important QSL data below)

I am an American expat living in Ho Chi Minh City, (Saigon) Vietnam. I am also licensed in the US as KD0ILM. I use an ICOM-718 with an MFJ-Auto tuner and an MFJ-1622 Apartment Antenna. I live on the 14 floor of an apartment building and the noise can be pretty tough here sometimes. I operate on SSB and Digital modes at 50 watts which is the limit for a US General in VN. If you come to VN with an Extra license you can operate at 1Kw. You can also test your way up to 1Kw. There is no reciprocity with other countries licenses so you come in with whatever your local license is and then are issued a Vietnamese license. A valid license from a recognized country waives the requirement for a seperate examination. If you need to take the exam it is quite similar to US exams and is available in English. Part of the test is code but computer generated code is acceptable. Your fee is calculated by how many bands you would like to use. The process is pretty easy and takes about a month. The local hams and the Vietnamese government are quite helpful.


I use eQsl.cc primarily. I also usw LOTW.
