I am very honored to be a member of CWops.
Thanks to N1DG/Don for nominating me and K3JT/Terry, K6RB/Rob, OK2PAY/Lada and JN1THL/Ken for sponsoring me.
I became a ham in 2008. The next year, I passed JA’s 1st class and FCC Extra.
I was really happy to get the NQ1J callsign. Since then, I have also been working as an ARRL VEC. I was active from Dominica as J79JF from 11th to 17th May, 2012.
I live about 60 km south of Tokyo. My shack stands by the sea and faces it in three directions resulting in a very good location. I really like both domestic and international CW contests. Band conditions are getting better and better, so I’m looking forward to seeing many overseas members.
Another addictive part of my amateur radio activities is ARDF. I have participated in IARU Region 3 championships and World Championships several times. By continuing I can improve my skills for both CW and ARDF.
By joining CWops, I have become more and more enthusiastic about CW.
I am looking forward to a QSO with you.This biography is what appeared in Solid Copy when the member joined CWops.
