    You may want to contact Philippine Amateur Radio Association - http://www.para.org.ph/main.htm and scroll down to the section about reciprocal licensing. Hope that helps.

    I have absolutely no good ham input for you. I can tell you this much.. Those islands have so much to offer, I doubt you will be doing much
    hamming.. They are gorgeous beyond belief and the people, as a rule are about as nice a group as you will find anywhere. Hope you make
    it there.

    I agree, PARA is very helpful and going through them is pretty much mandatory.

    My XYL's in Cebu, P.I. right now and through most of June visiting family and attending her college class reunion. I've visited three times but not this time.

    Most stuff is cheap. I think the Philippine Peso conversion now is about 43p to $1 U.S. dollar, so those "fees" which sound like a lot (such as "500p") actually aren't. 500p is about $12.
