I have installed 40m extensions onthe Mosley TA-34XL and can now offer 40m dx contacts.
Contacts on PSK31 can also be offered.
ZS1AFS and ZT1T are qrv from 40m to 10m.
Please use the email for any initialcontact.
My WAS certificate for 20m has arrived and Iamworking for WAS on 15, 17,12 and 10m.
Further to accompanyingdetails, logs are uploaded by email to LOTW infrequently (six months or more), due to poor Internet at QTH.
QSLs need 2 green stamps and addressed envelope to be returned. I am not a member of SARL or the ZS buro.
History of ZT1T
After many years of blue water sailing it was decided to sail our yacht back to South Africa from the UK, via CT3, EA8, D44 and PY.
I sailed as G0CAJ/MM with my XYL G0EZN/ZS1AFR from July 2010 to March 2011and was rescued mid-South Atlantic when the forestay fitting broke
and we could not pull down the furling sail. The deck-stepped mast became unstable and without a backstay there would have been no communications.
We had to abandon mid-ocean and arrrived back in ZS via Cameroun and the UK.
I have been QRV again as ZS1AFS since returning to ZS in April 2010 whilst working my WAS on 20m, for the second time.
I use the call ZT1T to mark the rescue and every Christmas back in ZS.
There is only one ZT1 call in South Africa! This is a unique prefix. Thanks to all who make ZT1T a success.
The final total, when the callsign was put back in the box on 12th Night 2013,was 154 countries and all 50 US states, on 20m.
ZT1T will be on air from Easter 2013 into April. If there is demand, PSK31 could be a mode of communication.
ZT1T cards are still being sent out. There are no outstanding cards as of29 March2013.
Mail to South Africa can take a few weeks to arrive in ZS and to be returned.
All of my previous US cards, contacts before April 2010,were lost when I abandoned my yacht.
Anyone who sent ZS1AFS a WAS 15m card, please can you re-send? I will respond with postage100% to anyone who is so kind.
New contacts should include 2 green stamps with their qsl card. I am not a member of the ZS buro.
Due to the recent volume of incoming cards I will not be able to respond to cards that arrive with insufficient, or no postage
And do not have previously arranged agreement.
Several cards for ZT1T have arrived without. I will hold them for a short period.
I can be contacted whilst operating on my email address 24/7.
I would like to thank the numerous operators who have responded to my request.
Thank you in advance. de Tom
