HAM - Amateur Radio

I received my Technician License in February 2018.
My orginal callsign was KG5YFZ, but I finally got myself 
a vanity call. I am now K2SMT

Right now I mostly "lurk" listening to what is going on in Oklahoma City on the 2 meter and 70cm (UHF/VHF) banda. I am a member of the South Canadian Amateur Radio Society. The "Canadian" part comes not becasue we are in Canada, but from the Canadian River that runs south of Norman.  Confusing huh?. You would think that we were a bunch of "Canucks".

I do dable in DMR from time to time listening in on Talk Groups 91 and 93.

I have an Icom 5100D in my Nissan Titan, a Vero VR-N7500 in the workshop, a TYT MD2017 for DMR and of course the obligatory Baofeng UV-5X3.
I recently added a couple of TYT 9800 radios. The 9800 is a quad-band radio with 10 meter, 6 meter, 2 meter and 70 centimeter. As a technician I have voice privleges on 6, 2 and 70. The radio only does FM, no SSB so the 6 meter is pretty limited to local repeater use and be be a bit quiet depending on your region.

As I get more into the hobby/obsesson I'll add more stuff. I do plan on hopefully getting my General license soon. Unfortunately covid cancelled the General Class in 2020 and I just haven't had time to catch 2022's class.
