QSL: EQSL OR LOTW PLEASE

Ham Member Lookups: 28560

QSL image for ZS5J

Please don't send me a paper QSL card - unless you REALLY need one (I don't collect cards). I prefer to spend my time on the radio working DX rather than spending time at the post office waiting in a queue. I prefer to confirm a QSO using LoTW or eQSL - that way I have more time to spend on the radio.

I have set my logging program (HRD) to automatically send eQSL cards to everyone I speak with. I have also recently joined LOGBOOK OF THE WORLD, and will upload my logbook frequently to the ARRL.

Licenced in 1984 as ZS5ABY. Changed callsign to ZS5J in 1988.

I like to try different modes and experiment with antenna's. I also enjoy going outdoors with ham radio - operating portable, or at the top of a mountain with either my Icom IC-703 or Yaesu FT-817. I also enjoy operating from the mobile with three Icom IC-7000's in each of the vehicles. Mobile antennas are a Little Tarheel II screwdriver motorized antenna (80m-6m), High Sierra Sidekick screwdriver (80m-6m), and Outbacker antenna(80m-6m).

November 2012: New addition to the family - new antenna at ZS5J - SteppIR DB-18 (6.9 Mhz - 54.0 Mhz beam) including 6 meter add-on. Antenna is up at 65 ft. 2 elements on 40 meters, dipole on 30 meters, 3 elements from 14 - 30 Mhz and 4 elements on 6 meter band. Also a new ProSisTel rotator to turn this antenna.

New Amplifier: Alpin 200

Part of my shack:

 

Antenna: SteppIR DB18, 2 elements on 40, dipole on 30, and 3 element continiously adjustable motorized yagi for 14 mhz - 30 mhz, 4 elements on 50 Mhz

 

Here is my Flex SDR operating room. Flex 5000A, Flex 3000A and Flex 1500A, with Apple MacMini 8GB RAM and Windows 7 64 bit, Dell 23 " LED monitor with optional Dell powered speaker soundbar attached beneath and Jetstream 30 amp power supply

Here is one of my mobile's on a recent trip up Sani Pass - one of the highest points navigable by a vehicle in South Africa. Icom IC-7000, and Little Tarheel II 3.5 - 60 mhz screwdriver antenna


I also operate from Lesotho 7P8/ZS5J and Mozambique, where my callsign is C91J.

Here I am operating from the back of my Jeep on a beach next to the Indian Ocean. Using a 40m Delta loop antenna, and MP-1 vertical, with an Icom IC-703. The Jeep uses an Icom IC-7000 and High Sierra Sidekick 80 - 6 screwdriver antenna.

 

 

73,

John, ZS5J
