Pse QSL via LoTW, the bureau or direct to my home QTH address. My home QTH postal address is also good if you work me as C91/95, 3DA, A25RJ or 7P8RJ, but the buro will not work for those calls. You can also refer to those specific call sign pages in QRZ for more information about activities in those countries. I also upload all QSO's into Clublog for matching purposes.
Born in Z2-land (then called Rhodesia), I moved to South Africa in 1980, passing my radio exam and CW test in school at the age of 15 in 1983. I currently reside in Pretoria (capital city, QTH altitude around 1 550m).
I have a great passion for HST CW, contesting, building HF antennas and more recently, participating in dxpeditions (the last one being 7P8D).
I'm currently constructing a new homebrew heavy duty tower which will be supporting a 4 element long-boom 6 metre monoband yagi, a Tennadyne T8 Log Periodic, a 3 element 30/40 metre yagi and a homebrew 80 metre linear loaded dipole. At the moment I'm using a hexbeam at reduced height and verticals for the low bands. I am also QRV on 60M on the ZS-land approved frequencies of 5 250 and 5 260 Mhz (less compensation for bandwidth dependant on mode used)
My other major hobby is wildlife photography, spending a large amount of my free time in Botswana, Namibia and Kruger National Park in South Africa. I run an Icom IC-7000 with a 108" whip (extendable to 210 inches) and an Icom AH-4 tuner in the 4X4.
Photo shows the XYL improving reception in Namibia by acting as a phased vertical array!
Postage stamp collecting started thanks to all the direct QSL cards received. Please feel free to send me any unwanted stamps along with your QSL cards - I'd greatly appreciate them!
73, de Roger
