PLEASE NOTE I DO QSL DIRECT, see below, AND NO EQSL OR QRZ.com LOG. Internet is very poor.

The latest additions/upgrade at ZS1AFS (ZT1T) are the 4-element tribander for 20, 15, 10m and TL-922 running 400 wattsin the lineup.

The ELECRAFT KPA-500is nowin line shortly for use on the WARC bands.

I have installed 40m extensions on the Mosley TA-34XL and can now offer 40m dx contacts.

The second tower has a 12 and 17m home-brew trapped yagi. A TW-33 will be installed shortly.

Both towers can be operated simultaneously, one using the TL-922 and the other through the ELECRAFT KPA-500, running 400wats, on 18 and 24MHz.

ZS1AFS and ZT1T are qrv from 40m to 10m.

Please use the email for any initial contact.

My ZS1AFS WAS certificate for 20m has arrived and I am working for WAS on 15, 17,12 and 10m.

Further to accompanying details, 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. Please no IRC because my local post office will not accept.

I am not a member of SARL or the ZS buro.

History of ZT1T

I am now working on DXCC for ZT1T. I will be sending out cards to confirm contacts shortly.

After many years of blue water sailing it was decided to sail our yacht back to South Africa from the UK, via GU, F, EA,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 2011 whilst working my WAS on 20m, for the second time.

I use the call ZT1T to mark the rescue every Christmas and Easterback in ZS. It is a permanent call used to mark events.

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, 06 January2014, was 154 countries and all 50 US states, on 20m.

ZT1T�will be�on air�around Easter 2014. If there is demand, PSK31 could be a mode of communication.

ZT1T cards are still being sent out. There are no outstanding cards as of 21 April 2014.

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 postage in green stamps,100%, 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 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
