During this visit I had more time to setup my station in Tagytay and test the antennas. I was very impressed by the performance of the spider beam and even the good propagation on the lower bands.
This time we stay longer than a week in our second home, and I set up a 12 m fibreglass pole with a G5RV multi-band dipole antenna for 40 m to 10 m. The pole is located at on corner of our area, the dipole endings are fixed at two other corners, so the antenna has a form of a 90 degree inverted vee.
Today I finally received my guest license for the Philippines. As it is based on my “old” German call sign DK4TB, I will be operating under the call DU1/DK4TB. My next planned visit is from Feb 6th to 13th, 2016.
