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%

My station,

Rigs #1: ICOM IC756Pro3+PW1 1kW

Rigs #2: Kenwood TS570S+JRC JRL2000F 1kW

My Antennas,

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 ! 

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 !

On 18th Dec 2014 I worked W1AW/4-Georgia in RTTY which was the last slot for Triple Play WAS with only W1AW/1 - 0.  So far, it is not announced that we can apply for such special Triple Play Award, that was just my own target. 

Many thanks for everyone who gave me W1AW/n QSO contact in 2014, I enjoyed calling you on the bands/modes. 


My dream is to complete DXCC on 6m and DXCC Challenge 3,000 while I am alive !

On 1st Jan 2015 I have 81 confirmed on 6m and 2682 for DXCC Challenge, still long way to go ! 

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. LoTW is a very good system to confirm QSOs, but we can use it for very limited awards, therefor I also exchange QSL cards simultaneously. 


Thank you for visiting my QRZ.com page and having read my short story.

Ham radio is great , have fun !

Narumi "Al" Kawai JA9APS/KF6G
