Ham Member Lookups: 20765


Hello everyone !cheeky

I am pleased to introduce myself as an active ham radio operator from Tokyo. My home town is Tokyo. I was born in 1961. My native language is Japanese. So please permit my poor English. I am using LoTW and eQSLcc, so please check those systems.

My fascination with radio started when I was a little over 13 years when I was a junior high school student. Like many of us, I also became a ham radio operator through Shortwave Broadcasting Listening route. My shortwave radio was SONY ICF-5800 and ICF-5900.

I got my ham radio phone class license in 1974. I started coming on the air witha home made dipole antenna and 3W 50MHz shoulder type AM/FM transceiver RJX-601. Later I got a CW class license. Then I got Yaesu FT-101ES 10W transceiver when I was a senior high school student. My first contact on 21MHz band was HA8 Hungary, it was CW mode and my antenna was HB9CV Quad (Swiss Quad) at the roof top.

When I became a university student, propagation on 50MHz was very good. Sunspot number became over 200 in 1981.March. Wow! I could hear many DX on 6m band every morning then. It was a very exciting experience indeed. I made contact with LU3EX KH6IJ etc. on 50MHz using simple 5/8 ground plane antenna. My transceiver was IC-551, it was only 10W but its power was enough for 6m F2 layer propagation. Then I learned higher education in the graduate school. The study has nothing to do with radio.

I made Elecraft K3 100W + P3 kits, I like them. Also I am using Yaesu FT-2000D (200W) + 3kHz NS Roofing filter and DMU-2000 RF scope unit for overseas communication. My linear amplifier is old Yaesu FL-2100Z 572Bx2 tube. My HF antenna is Nagara T59GX-3040 multiband trapped type which works on 40-30m for Dipole and on 20-17-15-12-10m for four elements Yagi. My antenna tower is a crank up type which is about 28m high at the mast top. My 50MHz antenna is a Create DesignCL6A five elements Yagi using 12D-SFA coax cable. I made contact with Europe on 50MHz under multi hop sporadic E propagation in 2012 and I made contact with K0 ,KH9, LU (TEP), ZP in 2013. 6m band, It is exciting VHF ham band !

My QTH is south of Sayama hills. They say that "My neighbor Totoro" lives there ! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Neighbor_Totoro

73 and 88 my friends and I look forward to meeting you on the air soon.
Thank you.laugh
