Thank you for stop by on my page and glad that you found my call sign on the bands.
I got first call sign as JA3JYX in 1965, operated on only phone(AM!) with home brew 807 transmitter and wire antenna. After learn CW,I found this mode is really good for low power DX then became crazy on CW and it is really fun to have a CW rag-chew with DX stations. Got first class license in 1971 and my station was licensed to 500W with pair of 813. Operated from Kingdom of Laos as XW8HP 1974-1975, but forced QRT by revolution of the country. After long time QRT, come back on the band in 2006 with current call sign. During QRT, business trip gave me a opportunity to visit hams in HS,YB,JY, SU, YV, PY and put some article to Japanese CQ magazine. Currently active on all bands.
Picture above shows 4 element cubical quad home brew for 5 bands(20 to 10m) and 2 element yagi for 40 and 30m (VP type). Installed inverted vee antenna for 80 and 160m band for winter low band QSO in January 2012.
Below shows a shack layout , the lamp is home brew by AK4RS using 803 tube which fit to my shack, thanks Roger. Key, I use a Bencher paddle, electronic key is home brew using PIC which has 4channel memory, and Vibroplex bug key which BV2DA gave me in 1976. Current rig is Kenwood TS-950S, TS-830S, ICOM IC-756PRO2 etc which drives HL-2K 3-500Z amplifier to 1KW output.
