<<<If you are looking at this page by the bad comments which uploaded 7th Nov.2014 and after, that was not sent by me. Someone did it using my callsign. Please ignor them,I don't spot such ones,absolutely!!>>>
I got my first amateur radio license in 1964 when I was 16 years old. Since then I have been operating under the same callsign JA9APS from the same QTH as I live now.
Soon after getting my ticket, I started listening CW and I found the great world of DXing.
My QSO : CW 50%, Data 30%, SSB 20%
Rigs #1: ICOM IC756Pro3+PW1 1kW
Rigs #2: Kenwood TS570S+JRC JRL2000F 1kW
1.8MHz Sloper,3.5/3.8MHz Rotary DP at 26m,
7MHz 2el phased array at 27m,10-18-24MHz 3el Tri-bands Yagi at 18m,
14-21-28MHz 6el Tri-bands Yagi at 25m,50MHz 7el Yagi at 20m
DXCC :Mixed(#1HR),Phone,CW,Digital,160m to 10m (9Bands),5B-DXCC,DXCC Challenge(above 2600).
In 2012, I participated in the Diamond DXCC Challenge and made QSOs with 204 countries, I enjoyed this award program and I am satisfied with the result.
On Feb. 2014, I completed Triple Play WAS Award , I thought it was more difficult than DXCC ! Thanks for everyone who gave me a new slot.
Now in 2014, I am enjoying ARRL Centennial QSO Party.
On 27th Aug 2014 I worked W1AW/1-Maine which was the last state for W1AW - WAS. Thanks for many wonderful operators who gave me each state ! I am still challenging to see if I could complete Triple Play WAS with only W1AW/1 - 0.
My dream is to complete DXCC on 6m and DXCC Challenge 3,000 while I am alive !
Now I am retired and I have enough time for DXing.
From time to time , I travel with my XYL Hiroko(JR9GTD) and we enjoy meeting Ham friends there.
Where I can get the radio permission, I like to operate the radio even in very limited time.
<< JA9APS/DL(1974), KF6G(1979), JA9APS/VE3(1979), 8Q7KN(2007), T88KF(2012), JA9APS/TF(2012), SJ0APS(2012) >>
If you hear me, please give me a call, your call is always welcome.
I QSL 100% via the bureau, I also upload my log to LoTW, clublog and eQSL(AG) more than once a week. So far, paper QSL is the best way to confirm a QSO, so I prefer exchanging QSL to other methods.
Thank you for visiting my QRZ.com page and having read my short story.
Ham radio is great , have fun !
