    on side routes

  • The Karoo Park is getting more interesting on the small roads

  • The landscape didn't substantially change for hundred of millions of years

  • The hartebeest is called "harte" deer because in Africaans 'harte' means heart. The horn forms a heart. Look at it.

  • Time is relative. Time is endless in the Karoo.

    The oldest granite is from 4 billion years ago.

    "The land will never change.

          If you change the land,

                it will turn on you."

        Australian saying from an

        Aborigine Elder

  • The Bradysaurus is the oldest reptile, which lived 265 million years ago  

    It belonged to the therapsida, which were the ancestors of us, the mammals

  • Earth, water, sun and the sky with the distinctive smell of the land with its vegetation - makes you small and reverential

Amateur Radio - my hobby and my passion

I was born in the southern part of Germany in 1960 and I made my licence in 1992 during our first stay in South Africa from 1991 - 1993.

My previous and first callsigns were ZS2ABG, ZS2ABW.

As we returned to Germany I was active from 1993 to February 2009 using the callsign DL2MHB.

Since 2008 I have also owned the US callsign W0MHB.

From 2009 till 2011 I used the newly issued callsign ZS2MS in South Africa during a second stay in Port Elizabeth, South Africa

From May 2012 I am again active under the German callsign DL2MHB

and I am proud member of the German Amateur Radio Club.

I am a technical physics engineer and I am interested in all technical and physical principles in connection with radio,

propagation and everything else which keeps the universe together.

But, what I defenitely also eagerly learned and absorbed, execept my ham radio licence in South Africa, is that God shall bless you all and save our world's beautiful nature and the whole planet for the coming generations.

I love DX-ing and would like to greet all radio hams worldwide from our lovely city Ingolstadt in Bavaria, Germany.
