Thank you for stopping by on my page and glad that you found my call sign on the bands.

I got first call sign as JA3JYX in 1965, operated only phone(AM!) with home brew 807 transmitter and wire antenna. After learn CW,I found this mode is really good for low power DX then became crazy on CW. Since then the mode gave me tremendous fun talking with DX stations. I got first class license in 1971 and my station was licensed to 500W with pair of 813 home brew amplifier. Operated from Kingdom of Laos as XW8HP 1974-1975, but forced QRT by revolution happened in country. After long time QRT, come back on the band in 2006 with current call sign. During QRT, business trip gave me a opportunity to visit hams in HS,YB,JY, SU, YV, PY and I posted a articles to Japanese CQ magazine. 

Picture above shows shack layout , the lamp is home brew by AK4RS using 803 tube which fit to my shack, thanks Roger. Key, I use a Himond(made in Japan) and Bencher paddle, electronic key is home brew using PIC which has 4channel memory, and Vibroplex bug key which BV2DA gave me in 1976. Current rig is Kenwood TS-590S and ICOM IC-756PRO2, driving THP HL-2K 3-500Z and ICOM PW-1 amplifiers to 1KW output. Three amplifiers and two radios are cross connected by home brew switch unit, it switch not only RF lines but also key, control, phones and microphone.

Picture below shows dual band yagi for 20m (4element) and 40m(2element), also WARC band dipole on top.  2 element cubical quad for 20m to 10m has been installed on the other tower in December 2016, mainly used for 17m and 15m band.
