Ham Member Lookups: 1713

 

I am originally from Hamburg/Germany, moved to South-Africa 1982 due to a family member immigrating there and following them. Lived in South-Africa most of my life, have Dual Nationality.

Grew up in Johannesburg and visited the Deutsche Schule Johannesburg from 1984-1991.

I've been playing with Walkie Talkies since 1984 when a friend of mine borrowed me his 1 channel set of kids toys Walkie Talkies as he was no longer interested in them. I made myself an antenna that looked like a spider web out of copper wire, connected it to one of the radios telescopic aerials and heard people speak on CB channel 21 AM (1984) in and around Johannesburg. CB radio was growing exponentially in those days.Listened for years to this channel with curiosity. Never was  able to speak with anyone using only 500 mW.

This led to the passion we all experienced eventually, getting hooked on the hobby and making friends all over the world via radio. 

Became a licenced HAM in 2001 with the first callsign ZR1BA. Changed it to ZS1AG in 2013.

My wife Natalia ZS1BN passed her license in October 2015 and is occasionally on 10 meters but also D-Star.
