From L-R : ZS6UB Vince, ZS6ZA Etienne and ZS6ZP Eric fixing antennas at the QTH of ZS6ZP

        

Debbie and I moved to the UK from Vryheid in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, during 2004.
I spend the previous 26 years in Law Enforcement in Durban and Vryheid (Kwa-Zulu Natal).
It was a big challenge for us to settle in Fulham/Hammersmith London. 
Our house was just around the corner from Chelsea Football grounds (Below):

We tried to cope with too many people and very bad traffic in London for nearly four years

With a "Bobby" in York

. . . But in the end decided to move North where it is much quieter. We moved to Saltaire which is a Victorian model village
located in Shipley, part of the city of Bradford Metropolitan District in West Yorkshire, England. We loved it there!

I do photography as a hobby and travelled all over the UK, always snapping away !

Whilst in London, I enrolled for the Foundation Licence Course with a privately registered RSGB tutor.
I did 3 months of studying and travelling from Hammersmith to Harrow on Thursday evenings.
For those that have travelled in London, they will know what a mission that was!

When the time came to write the exam, I was told that this tutor went SK (Silent Key).
I had no way of obtaining my practical mark sheet and basically wasted my time during those 3 months. 

At the beginning of 2012, I made a New Year's resolution to obtain my Amateur Radio Licence before the end of the year.
I joined the Keighley Amateur Radio Society in March 2012 and obtained my Foundation Licence M6ZAL at the end of that month.
I wrote my Intermediate Licence in June 2012 and obtained the call sign 2E0ZAS.
I did the Full Licence Exam on the 20th August 2012 and obtained the call sign of M0ZAN.
 
One of my persuits whilst living in the UK was to make Aero Nautical Mobile QSO's.
This is one my QSL Cards from such a contact.  PH9HB/AM  -  A Boeing Pilot flying over Europe playing radio.

We returned to South Africa during December 2013 and I have been actively chasing DX as ZS6ZA since.
