Hello and welcome!

First off, let me start by saying that I go by my middle name of Scott. My first name is Johnny and that is OK, but the preference is for Scott. Started out in ham radio when, at the urging of a good friend, KF5YP Steve, and my Elmer KA5OUG tested me around about 1986 for my novice license in Tulsa, OK. I grew up in the Tulsa area and I have lived in Sapulpa, OK, Tulsa, OK, Aurora, CO for about a year and a half, then Wilmington, OH for about 12 years. Now I'm back in the great state of Oklahoma living in Ponca City. My previous callsigns have been KB5CBF, N5KYI, and now KG5VW. My wife is also a licensed ham, N5OUU.

I have my Advanced class license, and some of my others include; General Radiotelephone Operators license with ship radar endorsement, FAA A&P license, and a COMPTIA A+ Hardware certificaiton.

Currently I am most active on 6 meter and 2 meter SSB and the W5IAS UHF link system in Northeast Oklahoma. I do frequent 3819.55 on weekend mornings, and sometimes on the Blackwell 145.310 repeater around 9 pm local time. I also listen to the E. OK talkgroup on DMR and the local 146.970 repeater.  I am also a member of the Kay County Amateur Radio Club here in Ponca City, the OIDAR club in Blackwell, and Tulsa Amateur Radio Club (TARC).  I have a KG5VW Facebook page and am a member on Linked In.

I recently started uploading my contacts from QRZ into LoTW, QSL cards are welcome if you don't use LoTW, just be sure to include a SASE if you want one back.

My current station, a Kenwood TS-2000 and a couple of handhelds, along with my Yaesu FT-8900 quad band in my truck. I also have an ICOM 706 MKIIG in my wife's car but only a VHF/UHF antenna. Below are my current antennas for 6, 2, and 440, an M2 6M5X, a Cushcraft 144-11, and a Comet GP-15 on the top fed with LMR-600 coax.
