I started Ham Radio with Trio TX-88A, 9R-59, VFO-1 and a single element quad at my home town " Toyama-city " in 1965, when I was 13 years old. I still remember that I made the first DX QSO with a Russian AM station on 15 meters in Autumn 1966. Since then, I have collected various sets of Collins S Line and KWM-2, Drake TR4-CW, National NCX-5, Swan 500C, Signal / One CX-7, Heath SB Series and so forth. During the period of university days, I had chances to be on the air on 20, 15 and 10 meters from OZ, SM, OH and DL in July-September 1973. Operating from the shack of the famous mountain in Germany, located in " Siebengebirge " near Bonn Germany, I was amazed to have many calls from Africa. I chose the company to do foreign business after graduation. I was assigned to the section handling export of Telecommunication Exchange Systems to Middle East, South East Asia, Africa and Central and South America under the budgets of World Bank and Japan Yen Credit. It has passed 48 years since the very beginning. Time flies like an arrow.
Ham radio is truly the King of Hobby.
