I started Ham Radio with Kenwood TX-88A, 9R-59, VFO-1 and one element quad at my home town Toyama-city in 1965, when I was 13 years old. I still remember that I made the very 1st. DX QSO with an AM station in Kemerovo Russia on 15 meters in autumn 1966. Since then, I have collected various sets of US Collins S Lines and KWM-2, Drake TR4-CW, National NCX-5, Swan 500C, Signal / One CX-7, Heath SB, HW Series and Japanese JRC. During the period of my university days, I was interested in foreign languages and my aim was set to be a polyglot. I had chances to work on 20, 15 and 10 meters from OZ, SM, OH and DL in summer 1973. Operating from the shack of the mountain in Germany, located in " Siebengebirge " (altitude; 400 meters above sea level) near Bonn Germany, I was surprised to be called from African continent. The journey was printed and published in "Ham Life" and "Mobile Ham" on January edition of 1974. Both were published in Japan in 1970's and 1980's. I chose the company to do foreign business after graduation. I was assigned to the division handling with the 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 was passed 50 years from the very beginning.                                                                                                                                                                                                         Time flies like an arrow.

Ham radio is truly the King of Hobbies. Please note that I made my 1st. DX QSO with a Russian FM station on 2 meters in July 2013. It is the same excitement as those in 1966. It is seemed Es propagation on the day. It is a lot of fun on 6 meter TEP. It may last 10 minutes and sometimes 2 hours. 6 meter band is so called " Magic band". VHF DX is thrilling indeed. I often work on HF,VHF and UHF bands from home town JCC #2801, Toyama-city as portable 9. The altitude is 100 meters above sea level and it is good for Worldwide DX'ing. The altitude in Kashiwa-city is 30 meters above sea level. I have started RTTY, SSTV and PSK31/63 modes in 2014.                                                                                                                                                                                                         Wishing you a happy new year and a good DX'ing in 2014 at Sunspot Cycle 24,

Ken
