私自身について簡単に紹介します。

氏名:中川 弘夫(ハンドルネーム:Naka)
1964年9月神奈川県生まれ。以降ずっと神奈川県に在住

 小学校5年の時に北京放送を受信して、この趣味を開始。以降小学生~中学生の間はBCLに没頭。当時の受信機はNational RQ-448(ラジカセ)を皮切りにSONY ICF-5900及びYAESU FRG-7。高校に入り遠い学校に通うのと部活や勉強に追われることになり、痛恨のリタイア。以降20年間この趣味から離れる。
 2000年にふとしたきっかけで再開。JRC NRD-535、AOR AR-7030を購入し昔以上にこの趣味に没頭。したがってBCLのトータルキャリアは四半世紀を超える。その後時代は変わり、メイン受信機はMicrotelecom PERSEUS及びAirspy HF+ DiscoveryといったSDRにシフトする。好きな分野は海外中波DXであり、環境悪化で聞こえない自宅を離れDXペディションでの受信が活動の中心である。遠くは海外に、国内では北海道~沖縄まで、そしてメインは湘南海岸や外房に頻繁に出掛ける。
 DXの趣味を楽しむために電子工作にも興味があり、師匠の指導を頂きながら様々な機器の製作にチャレンジ。沢山の製作物がある。また海外の同志の交流にも興味があるので、そのために英会話の勉強を続けている。
 更にこの趣味をお仲間と楽しんでいくために、近隣の同志と2012年に戸塚DXersサークルを発足。大勢の素晴らしい方との付き合いが広がり、この趣味を謳歌している。

Name: Hiroo Nakagawa
Born in September 1964 in Kanagawa Prefecture.
Since then, I have lived in Kanagawa Prefecture.
I started SWL hobby when I was in the fifth grade of elementary school when I received Radio Beijing.
Since then, I has been immersed in SWL from elementary school to junior high school.
My receivers at the time were the National RQ-448 (radio cassette player), followed by the SONY ICF-5900 and YAESU FRG-7.
When I entered high school, I was forced to attend a school far away, attend club activities, and study, and retired with regret.
I stayed away from the hobby for the next 20 years.
It was restarted in 2000 by chance.
I purchased a JRC NRD-535 and an AOR AR-7030 and became more immersed in this hobby than ever before.
Therefore, SWL's total career spans over a quarter of a century.
Times have since changed, and the main receiver has shifted to SDRs such as Microtelecom PERSEUS and Airspy HF+ Discovery.
My favorite field is overseas medium wave DX, and my main activity is receiving DXpeditions from my home, where I cannot hear due to the deteriorating environment.
I frequently travels overseas, from Hokkaido to Okinawa, and mainly to the Shonan coast and Sotobo.
In order to enjoy his hobby of DX, I’m also interested in electronic work, and has taken on the challenge of making various devices under the guidance of my master.
I have many products. I'm also interested in interacting with like-minded people overseas, so I'm continuing to study his English conversation skills for that purpose.
In order to further enjoy this hobby with my friends, I established the Totsuka DXers Circle in 2012 with my neighbors.
I am enjoying this hobby and have become friends with many wonderful people.
