Amateur - Ham Radio - ZL4KF - New Zealand - ZL.

ZL4KF is an Amateur Radio (ham radio) call-sign, the ZL prefix represents New Zealand, the number 4 historically was used to indicate the southern region of New Zealand (4th district) and the KF part is the individual station identification, in this case also being my initials. (Ken France). I have held this call-sign since 1971, after gaining my licence to operate an amateur radio station in that year. This website is about my amateur radio station, my interest in hf ham radio, especially hf antennas and ionospheric propagation.
New Zealand has around 6,000 licensed amateur radio operators and much information on amateur radio in this country can be found on the NZART website.

I built a website for ZL4KF in 1997 and one thing led to another, as it does, so that for the past 22 years I have earned a living as a webdesigner – Webfactor – all thanks to ham radio!
I hope you find this website interesting – any comments are welcome!
73, Ken.
