Biography

Hello my friends all over the world !
I was born in and now live in Kyoto, which is an old city and was the capital of Japan from 794 to 1869.
I have been licensed as JH3QAX since 1971 when I was a junior high school student,
and I obtained the Amateur First Class in 1979 when a university student in Tokyo.
Through all my fortunes, I got a position in a so busy insurance company after graduating the university,
that I made no QSO for 18 years at all. And then I retired from the job at 56 of age.
Today I enjoy a nice Ham-Life (and playing golf, too).
I like to make an antenna by myself, and sometimes try it by QRP and portable.
See you on the air !

Remarks:
About QTH: I moved from Sakyo-ku to Kita-ku, Kyoto in 2015.
About QSL: If you have to receive my paper QSL other than via the BURO, please send a self-addressed
envelope with no stamp (for free). I will send it back by regular mail.
eQSL is available by manual log entry.
