Projects, designs, articles and products supporting Amateur radio in South Africa

Welcome to the ZS6KMD Amateur Radio Web Site

While I make no claims as to technical accuracy, good design, or necessarily even originality for the contents on my web site, I am a simple electronics enthusiast attempting to convey my love and enjoyment of radio, electronics, and computing and perhaps to inspire YOU to build something too. The web site contains projects, articles and designs that I have put together over many years. Wherever applicable I have named sources and references. In each project I have attempted to provide as much information as time and resources allow, but no responsibility can be accepted for inaccuracies or omissions. I also supply various products under the product section which are sourced internationally to supply a growing hobby market with affordable products and projects. If you have any comments or suggestions, please drop me an email to kevin@zs6kmd.za.net

RaDAR or rather Rapid Deployment Amateur Radio is the brainchild of Eddie Leighton ZS6BNE. Started back in 2009, it has grown into an international phenomenon with interest from all corners of the globe.

The concept has evolved from Shack In A Sack to RaDAR over a very short time and is now a recognised contest platform.
