Chichijima is situated about 1000km south from Tokyo , very far from Hon-syuu , which is Japanese main island .
Only shiping is the means to the island . We need 24hours from Take-shiba sanbashi to Futami-kou in Chichjima .
JD1 is a special prefix for Ogasawara area . Off course , I am expecting to go to Minami-Tori-Shima (also using JD1 prefix ) , but , ordinary people is not permited to go there .
Only government-staff are permitted .

1) I was staying at the CHichijima cottage , very small housing !
2) Endffed antenna for 7MHZ
3) Delta Loop for high bands . It worked well , but by the wind , sometimes knocked down .
Ogasawara-maru about 10000ton . She need 26 Hours from Tokyo-City to Chichijima island . (Retired this ship at 2017)
[Result] SSB only

This time , I enjoyed the All Asian DX Contest CW.
50MHZ was in good condition by E'spo .
[Picture] Sumou ! There is a festival at Chichijima Island twice a year .
On OCT/2014 , I took this picture . Chichijima's people are gathering to the Jinja near Futami-port , and enjoy the festival .
[Result] This time , I enjoyed 160mCW and RTTY Mode .
