My US call is KD2AFE  . I have operated as FK/JG1XMV in New Caledonia (Main island, Ouvea, Ile Des Pins) recently (Feb/Mar 2016). When in France I operate as F/JG1XMV (profile in qrz.com). I have started doing some SOTA in France since the summer of 2014, operating as F/JG1XMV/P (a mouthful, especially when I add "QRP" at the end). When activating summits I am operating qrp using solar power with a FT-817nd. More details can be found under my F/JG1XMV profile.

When operating away from Tokyo so far, I have operated as: 




Thank you to my Elmers: Dan, 7J1ABD / WA6URY and Thierry F4EGG. Also special thanks to Dick 7J1BBC / KD6AZN for getting me started in Digital modes.

I currently mostly operate SSB / PSK / RTTY / DSTAR / Echolink. My antenna is a multiband folded dipole (D2T) and I am always barefoot running a max of 100w. I am surrounded by tall buildings so my QTH can be tough to operate from.

Given the compatibility issues between Japanese G1 repeaters and G2 repeaters on DStar, I have set-up a hotspot in my Tokyo QTH making it a lot easier to inter-connect with the rest of the world.

With regards to Echolink, it is a great tool for me when going backcountry skiing or snowboarding. My better half (JH1DVF) can contact me anywhere via her tablet while I am hiking in the moutains. The addition of DStar will allow here to follow my DPRS tracks live via aprs.fi this winter (well at least it is the plan).

To sum things up, I now use the following:


Echolink node: JG1XMV-L. QRG: 144.515 CTCSS 123. (EL-JG1XMV on aprs.fi).

DStar Hotspot: JG1XMV B. QRG 430.750 simplex (Shift = 0.00).


DStar Hotspot: JG1XMV C. QRG 430.750 simplex (Shift = 0.00). Located near Roppongi (Higashiazabu).

I can be contacted on DStar via call sign routing or via CCS 4411007 (CCS7) when using DTMF.

DStar DVMega Portable Hotspot : I was previously using a DVMega + BlueStack + BlueDV setup in order to access DStar on the go. It was working fine in Europe but since coming back to Japan there was a delay of between 6 and 8 seconds when connecting to the DCS033N in Europe. The "return beep" on my ID-51 took that long to come back after transmitting and if my counterpart starting talking before that delay was over I could not hear them talk. Even when connecting to local reflectors I still had a delay problem of 2-3 seconds. I have since moved away from the DVMega + BlueStack + BlueDV configuration and I have put the DVMega board on a Raspberry pi 3 as a hat on the GPIO pins (the Pi 3 has WIFI and Bluetooth connectivity) to test it out. The delay problem with the "return beep" is now gone and the radio is working perfectly. I am using a Pi-Star image on the raspberry pi and it is working very well and is easy to use. The DVMega switches connection to my smartphone's mobile data automatically when the home internet signal gets too weak. Very nice! I shall test this further.


Looking forward to meeting you on the air.

73, Arnaud.
