Born at the same place in a countryside in 1949 as I live right now. Grown up in a suburb of Tokyo, where I started ham radio. At first, I learned mechanical engineering at a college where I wanted to do directly with people rather than doing with milling machine. I have chosen the way to be a doctor. Moved here this countryside when I graduated from the med school and started residency here. Years have passed since then like a kaleidoscope. I have had my practice taken over by another pediatrician in the spring of 2012. I am enjoying house chores at present in addition to a parttime job once a week.
A ham, mostly on CW, since 1963.
An amateur cellist since the med school days.
A pediatrician since 1978.
A semiretiree since the spring in 2012.
My first love in ham radio has been CW. It pleases me a lot when the tempo of CW synchronizes my thinking. I may go on enjoying it until I could not pound the brass. My anxiety for CW operation in ham radio is that they won't converse with it any longer. But CW seems to have become only a tool to make as many contacts as possible. CW is nowadays a kind of game. It has become a meaningless symbol system for games. It is not just an argument between ragchewing and contesting/DXing. It is concerning about the essence of this mode. Anyway, see you on this mode and discuss about its future.
