ZS1PMH is an amateur radio station operated by me, Peter Henochsberg, from my QTH on a stud farm in the Dassenberg, Atlantis area approximately 50 km away from central Cape Town, South Africa. My grid locator is JF96gk and Lat is 33.5793S and Long is 18.5665E.
I qualified as a radio ham in November 2001 with a ZR restricted licence. In August 2005 I was received an unrestricted ZS licence.

| For HF I use a Yaesu FT-950 which I purchased 'new' off eBay. (If you wish to see why you should not deal with Martyn Allison of Radio-Mart on eBay, then click here .You will see one of a growing list of horror stories.) I am still learning how to use all its bells and whistles. It is a very nice rig. My first HF rig was an Icom IC-718 run through an Icom AT-180 tuning unit. This is an exceptional grade of entry rig and I still use it. I also have a Yaesu FT-7 with its matching FL-110 linear to bring it up to 100W output. For antennas I use a TH3 (20, 15, 10) on a 12m tower, a Windom (80 to 10) and a Butternut HF2V vertical (80 & 40). I also have a Yaesu FL-2100Z linear amp and a FC-102 antenna tuner.
My main rigs for VHF are the Icom IC-2200H and the IC-V82 handie - both are fantastic little rigs. Usually I run a 2m rig into a home-brew Slim-Jim but I also have a 7 element Yagi for VHF work.
For mobile work I have a dual-bander Icom IC-207.
MembershipsI am a member of the following clubs and associations:
ServiceI served as the secretary and treasurer of the Cape Town Amateur Radio Centre (CTARC - ZS1CT) from July 2002 to July 2010, when I stood down.
Apart from the standard duties and functions required of club secretary, I have developed a membership database in MS Access that I hope will eventually be adopted as a standard for all clubs and associations in South Africa.
I am the recipient of the Jack Twine Merit Award from the SARL for my service to the ham community.
