Welcome on my QRZ page!!

Being enthusiastic and passionate about radio since I was 12, back in the late '70. It was the time of the old 27 Mhz portable transceivers as they were quite popular toys for kids and teenagers....this is how I started. Then CB, SWL and ham radio in 1983. Spent a lot of time doing DX, listening to broadcasting and playing with home made antennas for HF. Being off the game until recently as I was busy with other adventures and hobbies....got recently back on air and it is like going back to my childhood...still a lot of fun and the same enthusiasm of 35 years ago, I really love this hobby!!!

Here below  my 3 element multiband Yagi for 10-15-20-40 Mt and the Warc dipole mounted on a home made 6 meter mast with Hy-Gain Ham IV rotator. V-Inverted dipole for 40-80-160 Mt

Operating with an old Icom IC728, SM6 Mic and 1250 Commander Amplifier;

also an old Drake TR 7 with Turner ceramic mic, RV7 VFO, MN2700 Antenna Tuner, L7 Amplifier  and the original external speaker MS 7.

Looking forward to develop and improve my shack and my antennas in the coming future.

I also love sailing, biking, down hill skiing, XC skiing, travelling, trekking and reading . As a passionate sailor I work in the yachting industry since ever and I have been using my radio skills also during long deliveries and Atlantic crossing on sailing boats, when SSB was the only method of communication.

I have been travelling, sailing and racing all over the world and one of my dreams is to be a member of a DX expedition on a remote island...it will be fun to reach the island on a sailing boat and then be also one of the operator on land. Hopefully one day....

Often operating holiday style from Cape Town, South Africa with call sign ZS1/IU2EFB.

Icom 728 and vertical antenna (see picture below).

I appreciate sending and receiving QSL cards via Bureau, LOTW, or direct to my address.


Enjoy this great hobby and best 73!!!
