I have been an amateur radio operator since 2018. I get asked sometimes if my callsign is a vanity callsign. The answer is no, KI5AOK is the callsign that the FCC assigned me (would you believe that it took me a couple of weeks to get the callsign correct once I got them? I was always saying KI5OAK rather than KI5AOK.) It has only been recently (since 2022) that I have become more active in the amateur radio community.
I’ve lived in the Houston Metroplex for over 40 years, so I’ve seen it grow and evolve. I lived in the Katy area for over 20 of those “over 40” years and, as crazy as I say the drivers are, I really like the place and will be here for many more years to come.
