Editorfs Notes

Although this June, July, August and September issue became merged two bimonthly issues due to the busy schedule of editorial committee members, this issue contains useful information including the article interviews CEO of satellite communications company in Turkey, and a special article on large antenna. Japanese regime was changed in the general election at the end of last year and its policy emphasizes on the economy which is said to gAbenomicsh. If the economic situation of our country continue to change for the better future, satellite communications operator and manufacturing companies will be expected to be made more active. Also the construction of satellite communications on the national security will be progressing under the enactment of the Space Basic Law. The importance of satellite communications will increase more and more. I would like to ask any comment of readers for articles. I hope you to enjoy SJR also in the future. (TI)
