アマチュア無線  Amateur radio operation









Amateur radio was once called the king of hobbies, but with the spread of the Internet, the number of amateur radio stations has been drastically decreasing.

Recently, while driving around Mukaishima Island in our ciy of Onomichi, a friend of mine took me to a house where a telescoping crank-type heavy tower for amateur radio has been installed, whose size and massiveness I was overwhelmed by.

One week later I visited the amateur radio operator (JA3DGE) at this house and had a very pleasant time talking with him in his shack (Upper row of the photos).

He was very good at telegraphic communication using Morse code, and I saw several Morse code telegraph machines, radios, exchanged cards, and photos of eye-ball meetings (meeting in person).

Everyone can enjoy amateur radios in different ways.

I (JE4FTP) started the radio amateur operation in the 1980s to talk with radio amateurs overseas, setting up a radio and antenna, and enjoyed many communications between Japan and North America, Asia and Australia for about 20 years. (Lower row of photos)

Thanks to this, I could get acquainted with many radio friends and visit them in the U.S. and the Philippines many times to have direct talking in person.



Now I have been enjoying talking with some of my former ham friends via TV phone over the Internet.
