BORN I was born in 1930, and at that time there was no amateur radio station where I lived, and no one with any apparent interest in it.
1961 I then got my license, and in 1961 put together my own A3 transmitter with 807 final, and made my first QSO. Radio waves and the sunspot cycle at the time were optimal, meaning I could make contact with hammers overseas using just the minimal power of 10 watts, so I got hooked on QSO.
CW Around that time, I saw JA7AB's outstanding CW transmissions and devoted myself to practicing them in English and Japanese. I then got my B-class license but because of work commitments and other factors, unfortunately didn't get the chance to get my A - class license. Currently I enjoy QSO using my IC7700（200 watts）, a 3-4 element Yagi, and a tower （110ft）.
138 GROUP Also, I very much want to continue with the 138 Group QSO that happens every morning. All the operators involved in the group have outstanding careers and unique personalities and love amateur radio more than anything.
Among them is JA6BDI, who is always out with his camera seeking to capture the beauty of the seasons; JA8FCB, who has been participating since 1969, so is famous in his ham radio circles, and has an A-class license; JA5CH, the owner of a two-letter call sign who aims to make 10,000 group QSOs; JA8EHO, who makes high quality QSOs with CW and SSB in spite of having lost his eyesight; JA6BHX, who researched making indoor and outdoor antennas using beer cans and QSOs at 50 watts; JA2FXJ, who has a broad and profound knowledge of health and unceasingly engages in daily health-related activities, and JA7ARM, who is always out in his camping car communing with the great outdoors; to name a few. 2016.2.1. write
