On the 1st March 2010 my wife and I moved to a small village called Henley-on-Klip, after 37 years of living in Alberton. One week later, on my birthday, (7th March) my antennas were up! The internet took a little longer. I only got that yesterday (26 March 2010)

It's free and I use them extensively for eQSL There are probably many cards waiting for you to be downloaded!


Just for the record:

All these pictures were taken with my Nokia N93, N97, N8 and now my Lumia 1020

I have moved to a much nicer and more central home in Germiston. Unfortunately, I had to give up my beautiful garden. I will have to remove some brick paving and make a little garden in the back My first priority is to get the antennas up!
