The original W2OKQ was my father James L Clark.(SK, 1974) who held the call from the late 1940's after his return from WW II where he served as a radio operator / side gunner on B-25's in the South Pacific.
1950's QSL card
1970's QSL card
I requested his call, in his memory, and used it until 9/13/2016. At the urging of a few NFARL club members, I have requested and received a new call to reflect my location in Georgia and personally hope that W2OKQ will be requested by one of my children if and when they sit for their ticket.
I want to thank my Elmers for their generosity of time and spirt for getting me started , Chuck AE4CW and Mack W4AX.
I also want to thank, Jim W4QO , for all his work to assist us who wish to improve our HAM skills.
