JA3AAW is the Asia/Oceania-pilot-station for the Kingman Reef 2000.
I'm Yosi JA3AAW. I got the First class amateur radio operator license in 1954 at age 19 and have been licensed my station since 1958. I enjoy DXing so much and have the 364 entities confirmed. My favorite mode/band: CW / 30-160M. 160M-DXCC: 190 entities / 38 zones. The station is located 1 mile south-west of the 135E/35N cross point. The QTH is surrounded by mountains, so I'm handicapped on the higher bands. Then, I like to chase DX on the low-bands, especially on 80/160M. Grid Locator: PM74LX (Again, one mile south-west of the 135E/35N cross point). Equipments and antennas: Rig: TS-950SDX, Linear Amp: HL-3KDX 1KW. Ant: 15/20M= 5 ele dual-bander, 30/40M= dual band dipole. 80M= 3/4 wave length slopers, 160M= Inverted V dipole & 1/4 wl sloper. 12/17M= dual band dipole, 10M= GP. Ant-tower: 24m high crank-up type, made by Aichi tower. No VHF Packet-cluster / RTTY. League Membership: Japanese Amateur Radio League Other interests include: photography, gardening, golf, listening to music and volunteer service in the local community. Population of our city: about 45,000.
