EX: N5CE, DA2GL, KH6HDB (HAWAII & KURE ISLAND), K5LTH

Proud father of Ryan Lewis, WOKEE.  I am so excited he took the plunge and got into ham radio.  I think he's quickly learning why I'm so passionate about this wonderful hobby.  To me, this is the best hobby there is!  I've also got two daughters, Lisa and Lori, that I love equally as much but they're not involved in ham radio.

**ATTENTION COUNTY HUNTERS: Mounds, Oklahoma is located in Creek County, HOWEVER, I live 3 miles south and 2 miles east of Mounds, which puts me in OKMULGEE County rather than Creek County **

KN5LTH - AGE 12 - JUNE 1961

I wanted to pay tribute to the original holder of the callsign W5LE.  His name was Vince Fertitta from Louisiana (SK) and I am told he had the callsign all the way back to when there were so few hams that he was issued the call as 5LE.  I acquired the callsign on July 17, 2004.  Below is a QSL card from 1959.  Interestingly, there's no indication on the QSL card of the station he had the QSO with.  Rest in Peace, Vince.
