I am extremely honoured and pleased that I was invited to join the ZS9X contest team for the upcoming CQ-WPX SSB and CW contests for 2012. Most likely, to take part as a Multi Two station.
The ZS9X contest station is by far the most prestigious and capable station in Southern Africa. The station is well situated a few kilometers outside of Bloemfontein and has a number of very tall towers and large antennas.
Heck, I am very pleased with this development. This is a great opportunity for me to learn from our top contest operators.

I guess I'll have to spend a lot of time with “Morse Runner” in the next few months. I would hate to blow this opportunity due to poor performance from my side.
Not sure who are on the team yet, but some of the regular operators are: Bernie ZS4TX, Chris ZS6RI, Chris ZS6EZ and John ZS4S and they are all very experienced in contesting.
It will be a big challenge for me changing from contesting in the slow lane to being a team member of a “Big Gun” contest station.
