I like doing innovention of ham radio equipment:. motor drive variable inductors for antenna matching mechanism, dynamic antenna control system by phase frequency detector, impedance matching transformers by toroidal-core, etc.
I started this hobby in 1965 in KYOTO. In those days I was called “a crazy radio boy” because I made a lot of receivers, transmitters, and wire antennas around my home. I always listened to radio every day. I was first licensed in 1974 as JA9NBB while I was in Fukui City. I moved to Sagamihara City, Kanagawa, in 1995, where I was licensed as 7L3FEN. Now licensed as JA1BBE at Machida City in TOKYO.
