I was born in the coastal city of Port Elizabeth in January 1966, and (apart for a 9-year stint in Johannesburg) have been in the same house in the suburb of Walmer all my life. I attended the Grey High School in Port Elizabeth, and subsequently spent a couple of years studying Computer Science at the University Of Port Elizabeth before finances forced me to abandon studies and embark on my 2 years of Compulsory Military Service in 1988. I was trained at the SADF School Of Signals, and during 1988 joined the SADF Permanent Force. I was posted to the Eastern Province Command in Port Elizabeth, where I served until late 1991. After a brief stint in the Liquor Trade I moved to Johannesburg in early 1995, where I trained and worked as an Apple Service technician until late 2003 when I returned to Port Elizabeth due to health issues (diabetes and high cholesterol). After a time recovering and working part time, I joined my friend Donovan ZS2DL in his Radio Business up until 2012 when I returned to the IT industry as a freelance Support Tech. In August 2016 I married Tracey, and we live happily in the flatlet at the back of the family home with our 3 dogs (a Rottweiler, a Border Collie and a "Rescue" crossbreed) and a cat. We are devout Christians, actively involved in our local Methodist Church.

First licenced in 1985 in Port Elizabeth as ZR2AAB (restricted licence, limited to VHF), and subsequently held further restricted calls ZR6DXB (following move to Johannesburg) and ZR2DX (upon return to Port Elizabeth). Upgraded to my current Unrestricted call of ZS2EZ in 2005.

Active from 80m - 6m. Particularly keen on digital modes, predominantly RTTY, FT8 and JT65. I am set up for most digital modes, using WSJT-X, JTDX, FLDigi, MultiPSK, MixW and assorted individual-mode applications. I am a member of the DMG, EPC, WCC and 30MDG. I am also an Awards Manager for the 30MDG, administering the Africa Award series.

A note re the JT Modes : I hold the view that these are Weak-Signal modes, NOT Low-Power modes. I routinely run 100W on both JT65 and FT8 (I do NOT use my amplifier though!). If you cannot get through to me, you may need to TURN UP THE POWER! Additionally, I am located in a relatively high-noise Suburban area, so very weak signals are a problem for me!

I currently hold DXCC Awards for Mixed (332), CW (312), Digital (304) and Phone (299). I also hold DXCC on 80/40/30/20/17/15/12/10 meters (8BDXCC), and am currently only one entity short for Honor Roll. I also hold the ARRL Triple Play Award, and qualify for WAS on 30-10m. Only need ND for 40m. Recently begun adding States on 80m. Completed JT65 and FT8 WAS.  I also hold a WAZ Certificate for RTTY, as well as WAZS and ALL Africa Awards from the SARL.
