Membership - HOWTO apply for
For applying the membership, a guest clicks the link "Register as new member" on the Search Page (HomePage). This link for a membership is in the upper part left. Please read it through carefully to find out what we are, how we behave etc. - and to find the code word for the on line profile form. Please do not pay anything before you have received the automatic eMail. We recommend to first getting to know more about a membership by looking at the content including the "Forum" and "Papers". Membership should not be "a quick jump".

Dear Radiophiles,

I looked through our membership to see if we had a big list of members from Japan. Japan has a long history in Electronics, so this motivated my search.

The total count of RM members in Japan is only 7, however, two of these members have very interesting personal web pages.

One member is Alan Kastner with a personal web page showing very nicely photographed Japanese radios.

Another member is Hidehiro Hirose with an amazing collection of tube radios that he designed showcased in his personal web page. His radios have clear cases that show the inner beauty of his radios.

Hidero's page is another page that google-translate makes accessible to our wide membership. Just paste his URL into the google-translate page for a translation to your language.

I know of another exceptional radiophile in Japan, with whom I have corresponded, is Tooru Kawabata with a personal web page showcasing his pocket radio tube designs, also in clear cases. His page has a fair amount of English text, but you can also fill in the language gaps with google-translate.

Enjoy Japan,
