About JH1HRJ (LoTW is prefered for QSL, and e-QSL is OK, also via bureau or direct)
Visited Sunnyvlae, CA from Sept 23 to 26 for the OB meeting of the University of Electro-Communications, who live in US, and met with SVJHC (KK6JA) members, and also had a first ever fligt experience in the PIC seat for my life at Reid Hillview (RHV) airport in San Jose.
Being active as one of the operators of 8J1ISMC (Isumi-city 10 years anniversary special event station until March 2016).
Recent activities also include ZL7X DX Pedtion held from Sept 10-15, 2014, and more informations are on QRZ.com/ZL7X.
My name is Kaz, and I live in Hiratsuka-city, Kanagawa Japan, about 60km South West of Tokyo, southern part of Kanto plane
near Sagami bay and Pacific Ocean. The area here is nice suburb of Greater Tokyo and climate is calm with good fish and vegitable.
I have been ham for 48 years and have enjoyed mainly DX contact until this year, 62 years old.
Ham radio is one of my best and most favorite hobbies that can be done until SK of my life.
Because of my job, I had chances to operate radio with other countries licenses such as USA(WR6Y) New Zealand(ZL3JP/ZL7J/ZL7X), Korea(HL5ZEC) and some other countries
including guest operations such as DX1HBC in Manila, supported by many of my ham radio friends in these countries.
Recently concentrating to PSK31 and JT65/9 digital mode, also started 6m DX QSO with my new 6 element Yagi.
Fortunately the location here is on a hillside about 50m above sea level and good propagation especially to NA/SA and EU, so reasonably small beam and lower tower works well for good propagation.
I also have got a radio car used by a broadcasting station with a 25 feet telescopic antenna pole which is excellent for portable field operation.
Please enjoy some of my photos shown below.
I hope to work all of you, DX stations, see you on the air and waterfall.
Best 73s, de Kaz JH1HRJ
