Does anyone know anything about ham fests in the Philippines? I want to find out if they sell used radio equipment like every other ham fest I've ever been to. I live in the Philippines and I can't get any info. I do know it is illegal to own a rig here if it is not registered and you don't have a certificate that you have passed a license exam. Over here the rig is licensed and the ham has a certificate. I've even tried emailing PARA (Philippines Amateur Radio Association) but they are "closed mouth" about it. They don't want you buying radios unless you have a license to do so. I plan to get my license April 5th so I will have the proper docs. I was a ham in the States for ten years. Thanks for any help any body can give,
