Great news from Pierre ZS8M – He has established a Ham Radio Shack for the visually impaired in South Africa.
This is what Pierre tells us;
As I stated on my www.qrz.com/db/zs8m web page, I have established a ham shack for four visually impaired radio hams in Worcester. The equipment was purchased from the donations of the ZS8M qsl cards. The Icom IC-718 also has a voice module to assist them with frequency and mode selection, while the antenna is a military grade broad band HF antenna allowing them to select bands easily.
