I was built in 1944.   Got Ham License in 1960 when I was 16.

Activities mainly on HF bands.   CW/SSB/Digital (RTTY/PSK).

                                    If you have time.....


Since my Ham license given in 1960, I was quite active for Ham Radio about 5 years. Akihabara (known place in central part in Tokyo where electronics components devices were available, actually the place started as US military radio surplus shops) was on way of commuting to the high school, so daily visit was routine. Everything in my shack therefore all home blew rigs built at very minimum cost. Primary AM CW rigs. Antenna was just dipole using bamboo poles in congested area of down town Tokyo. I still remember my 1st oversea QSO in my life that was on 40M CW with K6 station (I still have the QSL card).

In 1967 I lived in Long Island New York USA for 2 years where I picked my basic English. Upon return to Japan, I joined RCA (Radio Corporation of America) Tokyo office and worked in Engineering for 20 years and then worked for Apple Computer for 15 years with a lot of fun with development (hardware side) of various Mac products, iMac, PowerBook for example.

My business priority however badly dictated slowing down my Ham activity while I somehow maintained shack & antenna for some limited QRV.  Upon my retirement from Apple in 2003, recovered some Ham activity though not much on HF. 

However my HF activity restarted recently and now enjoying my late catch up with chasing DX.

Looking forward to meeting with you on HF bands,    Chuck


My current Antennas are...

HF   7/10/14/18/21/24/28/50Mhz     SteppIR  3 elements
HF   3.5/7/10Mhz                             T2FD Wire Dipole
VHF  144Mhz                                   9 Ele Stack
UHF  430Mhz                                  13 Ele Single


My family members all see my Ham Radio Hobby is CRAZY. Digging hole for Tower and put up big antenna while people can talk to anywhere anyone worldwide by one click on cellphone. I hear them loud & clear, but ignore them just going my way Hi.


JA1EPJ is also Musician, Recent phot playing steel guitar in Hawaiian live house in Tokyo. Was Classic & Flamenco guitarist as well.  Also enjoyed MIDI computer music as easy Macintosh was great help. 

A little song composed sometime ago...
