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.

When I was a junior high school student, I made a simple 0-V-1 receiver and a small inverted L antenna for the first time, and with the receiver I heard some CW QSOs, those signals were coming from outside Japan. In that years, we did not hear many SSB signals, and even if SSB signals were there, it might not be easy to demodulate on my simple receiver ! That was the very beginning of my DXing.

I prefer CW rather than SSB.

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

I work CW SSB RTTY PSK.

DXCC :Mixed(#1HR),Phone,CW,Digital,160m to 10m (9Bands),5B-DXCC,DXCC Challenge(just 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.

In 2014, I completed Triple Play WAS Award , I thought it was more difficult than DXCC ! Thanks for everyone who gave me a new slot.

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

Now I am retired and I have a lot of 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 and clublog more than once a week.

I have sent all e-QSLs for the QSOs before 20th March 2014 and will QSL regularly.

 

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