Snyder HAM equipment

Honoring a silent key friend and Brother.


This page serves two purposes.

1.) To say thank you to the family of my friend and Masonic Brother, W5OGC, Oliver Meeks, silent key, for giving me Oliver's HAM equipment so I may continue what he and I started over 28 years ago. Oliver is the main reason for me getting into HAM radio, at least starting the interest way back in about 1978. He was the contact in Snyder, OK for the Altus Skywarn weather team we use to rely on for keeping our community safe during severe storms by giving us timely alerts of dangerous weather nearby.


2.) To show some of the equipment fellow Lawton HAMs have helped me bring home. A special thank you to N5PYU, Kenny, who made the initial trip with my wife and I to look at the HAM Shack and see what was available and ended up loading bunches of cool stuff.
