The DX Recordings of Tetsuya Hirahara

My grandfather was a ship’s doctor. His favorite pastime on board was listening to shortwave radio. He purchased a new portable radio every time he went to sea. Thus there were always several radios in his house. At my request, he gave me a New Nippon Electric Company (NEC) NT-910S and I listened to local radio programs from time to time.

In the meantime, my brother became interested in amateur radio. He tuned to 7 MHz with the NEC and caught local ham conversations. When I was reading a radio magazine that he bought, I found an article on shortwave listening. And so I began shortwave listening in 1970 with the NEC.

My DX world was broadened when my father bought me a Trio 9R-59DS, which was popular among Japanese DXers. One night, when I was tuning the 60 meter band, I caught a strange signal on 5025 kHz. Yes, it was really strange for me. They played seemingly Andean music, but it was quite different from the melodies I used to hear on Japanese radio programs as typical Inca sounds; and the language was not Spanish, but sounded like a language of South East Asia. The station might have identified as Radio Quillabamba, Peru, but I was not sure; no one had reported reception of that one in Japan. So I asked for help from a DXer experienced in hunting Latin American stations. He kindly told me that the station identified as Radio Quillabamba, most of the music played was Huayno, and the language used was Quechua. At that time I was a newcomer to listening to Latin American stations, and quite ignorant about basic knowledge of the region. Radio Quillabamba was a good verifier, and soon I received a reply from the station. I was quite impressed with their beautiful pennant, which led me to the fascinating world of Latin American DXing.

In the latter half of the seventies, shortwave listening became popular in Japan. I began to contribute to Japanese radio magazines, writing articles on Latin American reception. By this time I had obtained a Yaesu FR-101S. The weak point of this receiver is that it covers only the SWBC bands. Later I purchased a Kenwood R-1000 and ICOM IC-R70 in order to monitor out of band stations.

In the past, when there was no internet, the main source of DX information was the news bulletins published by DX clubs. In order to obtain up to date news, I joined the Japan Short Wave Club (JSWC), Japanese Association of DXers (JADX), NASWA, and Numero Uno (NU), among others. In addition, in 1978, with colleagues, I formed a DX club, Radio Nuevo Mundo (RNM), specializing in Latin American stations. The club was named after Radio Mundial, another Latin American club, in Germany. We tried our best to send DX news from Japan for the benefit of DXers around the world. And we were very proud of the series of booklets, "LA DXing," that we published and that were full of Latin American station data. Their unique feature was the information gathered during station visits by members.

My work as a contract management officer in the overseas consulting service division of a utility company involved traveling overseas, especially in Latin America. As a DXer, I always brought a portable radio--Sony ICF 2001D, ICF100SW or ICF-SW7600GR--with me in order to monitor local radio activities.

Lately I have devoted myself to studying the history of Japanese radio programs destined for Japanese immigrants and/or Japanese living in the Americas, as inspired by a lecture in 2000 sponsored by the Asian Broadcasting Institute of Japan. There are Japanese communities in Brazil, Peru, Paraguay, Bolivia, Argentina, Canada and the United States. I have published a series of books titled "Japan Hour," focusing on Brazil, Latin America, Peru, and North America. Japanese programs over Brazilian radio stations became very popular after 1952. It was said that once a new radio station was established in São Paulo State or Parana State, there should be a Japanese program. From São Paulo, shortwave outlets were used to reach vast audiences in the interior part of the State. Stations which were able to send independent programs on shortwave showed interest in leasing time for Japanese programs. Such were Radio Panamericana, Radio Cultura, Emissora Piratininga, Radio Difusora and Radio 9 de Julho. For example, Radio Cultura had a daily 8-hour Japanese program on shortwave in 1962, making much use of the transcription service from Japanese local radio in Osaka. It is quite interesting to discover such history, along with the publicity for the programs that appeared in local Japanese papers.

Note: You can find the various volumes of "LA DXing" here.
