    Pierre was active Radio Amateur, active DXer.
    Information from his QRZ page:
    Born in Oranjemund, South West Africa (now Namibia) in 1962.

    Joined the SA Air Force in 1981 and served for 10 years, qualifying as a radio telecommunications technician. The high light was 3 years in Oshakati during the border war where I was in charge of techincal support and maintenance of all the telecommunications at 310 AFCP.

    I am also an active member with Wilderness Search and Rescue, Off Road Rescue Unit and HAMNET Western Cape.

    I am also a proud member of the South African Radio League (SARL) and the ARRL.

    I was licenced in 1985 as ZR5KF while in Durban.

    Former call signs: ZR5KF, ZR3BA (South West Africa), ZR6ASA, ZR1ACE and ZR1PDT before upgrading to ZS1HF. I held YI9HF in 2007 while on contract in Iraq.

    I am an active two-way radio dealer in the Western Cape, specialising in miltary and commercial HF systems, repeater systems, specialised communication applications and projects. To date I have been instrumental in training some 1008 new radio amateurs in the Western Cape.

    I am married to Louise ZS1ONI.

    I was fortunate to spend a year working on Marion Island as the resident radio / electronics technician and also operating as ZS8M. I returned to Cape Town in May 2011.

    I also spent 8 month on Gough Island (Feb to Sept 2014) and operated at ZD9M.
