My ham History

Dear Fellow Radio Friends
I have been an Amateur Radio Operator Since January 1986 and held the call sign ZS3MA before Namibia became Independent on 21 March 1990.As a ham operator who love this hobby I did my "Morse code" (CW) test with allot of nervous fear as it was a "live" QSO to determine the "Pass or Fail" not to see if I can dah di dah , but to look at my ethics of becoming a fully licensed "ham" radio operator.
The wait for the results felt like an eternity, but boy were I glad to get the congratulations from the post master that my license has been issued with a FULL license "ZS3MA"...I felt like a promoted sergeant... :-)
I have been ham radio'ing ever since but lost most of my equipment during a QTH move and very difficult illness & financial circumstances. I never realy had an opportunity to replace the equipment. I only started to look for some ham radio equipment again during 2010/11
During the month of May / June 2013 I was diagnosed with a stage IV Malignant Melanoma cancerous tumor that took my life to the extreme edge as major surgery were needed to remove the tumor. There after I were treated with chemo therapy by means of injections 3 x per week with interferon ALFA-2B which took my system to its lowest level in 40 years. During this period, I took several options of fighting the melanoma cancer disease and August 2014 diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. In 2014 I had my second lower back surgery again due to nerve down my left leg getting tension on L5 S1 between the vertebra..(The cushion was behaving like a minion on it own mission but have been repaired) It is going well at the moment as I manage some challenges with natural anti-inflammatory and pain remedy using herbal plants and very healthy diet. We are living gracefully at the moment under some difficult economical & challenging times and very grateful that God saved me from death during this severe illness period. I now live with spiritual believe and hope, thankful for every new day of being alive with absolute minimum basic income living in an above average and very expensive city - Windhoek Namibia.
Anybody willing to donate or gift non used equipment towards my Namibia Amateur Radio Station or contribution is welcome, you may contact Harry my QSLM and may God Bless you too

My Current QTH is based in Windhoek, Capital city in the Republic of Namibia, (very expensive place to live)
Namibia have now around 2.5 Million people, very beautiful dry and somewhat desert landscapes with a diverse wonderful friendly and easy going somewhat laid back population. Namibia's celebrate Independence on 21 March since 1990. 29 Years of independence!! It is still a very nice country yet it becomes more difficult every year for life due to increased crime and African economy in trouble.

May I meet all you Good Ham friendly spirit, making new ham family friends on the bands...dah di dah >>> 73's de V51MA - Mike
