The 2004 JAIA Ham Fair was held at Tokyo Big Sight (sic) again this year. Attendance appeared to be up Saturday, with a large crowd in the morning. Special event station 8J1A is on HF through 1200MHz, including a D-STAR station on 1200MHz.

  • Yaesu is showing their FT dx 9000 MP (Y1,100,000), FT dx 9000 D (Y1,050,000, available 2004/12), and FTdx9000 Contest HF transceivers.
  • Icom is showing off their IC-756PROIII. They are also demonstrating a lot of D-STAR equipment, such as the new D-800 transceiver, including how it can tie in to GPS.
  • Kenwood's ARCP-480 Radio Control Program allows complete control of your TS-480 locally or remotely.
  • AOR is offering a tube type audio amplifier. They also have an SR 2000 FFT Surveillance Receiver. (Y239,400) The AOR ARDV8000 crams a digital voice system into an oversized speaker-mic for an HT.
  • FR Radio Lab is offering a range of very tiny EH antennas for 160 to 20 meters.
