ZS8Z Update 19 August 2014
All the un-posted ZS8Z cards that were in my possesion have been dispatched. I now have the list of PayPal donations and half a box full of blank cards. Thanks to some contributions from the DX Community I had enough funds to post all the cards, but now the kitty is empty. A list of the cards that have been posted to date is available here. 
ZS8Z Cards Posted 
I am unsure of the card status of some of the PayPal contributors. All I have is a list of names, dates and amounts, no callsigns. If your name isnt on the list of cards posted then please contact me to get your card. All new QSL requests beyond that will require a $2 donation (preferably sent to me via PayPal using my email address above), no IRC's please. I have opened up the OQRS system on Clublog for this purpose. The electronic logbook from David has been uploaded it to LoTW. There are a few problems that have arisen, mostly to do with missing band information and times of QSO's. If you did not get a LoTW confirmation and you were expecting one please email me to investigate. Contacts have now also been uploaded to ClubLog so you can search for your contacts here. ClubLog Search ZS8Z


My main interests are in chasing DX on HF, and the technical side of the hobby on VHF/UHF, Satellites (not so much these days), EME and Digital operations. 

On HF I am active mostly on the Digital modes (RTTY, PSK and JT65A), SSB and CW. Operating on 160m to 10m as propagation allows. I enjoy participating in the CQ WW RTTY, SSB and CW contests mostly just giving points away.
I am currently also active on 2m EME using two M2inc 2MXP20 H/V yagis with a home brew SSPA.

The contact can last but a moment but a QSL card is forever, its the final courtesy and I enjoy sending and receiving them. One day I hope my son will page through the cards as say "wow Dad worked Amsterdam Island".

I have a 100% QSL policy for all cards received - my current HF card is shown above. Green Stamps or an IRC are not required to obtain my card. It will however guarantee you will get an immediate reply.
* Cards received direct will normally be answered within 1-2 days of receipt of your card.
* All contacts are uploaded to LoTW (Logbook of the World) on a daily basis and Clublog weekly.
* Cards via the Buro also OK, but will be returned via the same route.
* I dont persue e-QSL awards, but will gladly confirm a e-QSL if required, send me an email.

Unfortunately it is so that some cards get opened by the postal workers looking for money, so try not to put your or my callsign on the outside of the envelope. If you sent me a card and you think its gone missing please drop mean email and I will post another.

I hope to hear you on the air soon - 73 for now!


See ZS1LS/P for details of operations from Blombos.
