Welcome to my QRZ.com page.  If we haven't spoken on the air, I hope to do so some time.  I've been a ham radio operator since April 1983 when I passed my Novice and used the call sign KA5QNB.  That same year I passed my Technician license and stayed that level until 1989.  At that time, I got married and went active duty in the Air Force which was motivation to get my General Class license.  In 1993 my family and I lived in Phoenix, Arizona when I got the idea to get a "7" call since I knew I would eventually go back to Oklahoma. I thought having a "7" call would be unique in Oklahoma so I applied for a non vanity "7" call that ended up being KB7ZCO. I was issued that call on October 5, 1993.  What an aweful call sign that required me to give it out phoenetically every time.

When we finally moved back to Oklahoma, I found out that my dad's (W5QO) original call was available so I requested K5GLH as a vanity call and got it July 31, 2001.  I upgraded to Extra Class July 3, 2004 just because I thought after 21 years, at that time, I should have progressed to that point.  My wife got her license that same year and I am so proud of her for the acheivement.  My dad was my inspiration to become a ham and still is to this day.  God has blessed me with a great family, health and employment.  I am so blessed and give all the glory to God. We've lived in four states and a couple countries over our Air Force years but Oklahoma is and always will be our home.

As an experiment, in 2002 I was playing around with VoIP using iLink, Echolink, IRLP.  When I put on my first IRLP node, I realized there was not another one for more than 100 miles from here so I decided to put up a web site with instructions for others to use it.  I was brainstorming what to call it so I just came up with Del City Amateur Radio Club.  Before long we had two repeaters and two EchoIRLP nodes on the air. Later it became Del City Amateur Radio Society.  To this day, my dad, wife and brother and I run this club as a hobby.

Thank you for stopping by...

My HF antenna that I am currently using is an Alpha Delta DX-LB Plus at 20 feet above the ground as shown in this image. There is also a dual band Diamond X510 vertical on top of the pole.

We recently installed this 52 foot Rohn 55G tower that will soon house my antennas.
