This page is created for the use of Ham Radio Operators who need a particular kind of information concerning Ham Radio.  Hope you will find a lot of useful information on this page.  There is information here that will be particularily helpful for those hams living in NW AR, SW MO, SE KS and NE OK.  You will not find many fancy graphics here that slow down the transmission of data and information.


My name is Richard Naylor, callsign K5LRS, and I am located in a little community called Wedington Woods, about 6 miles west of the city of Fayetteville, Arkansas.   I will place my QSL card on this page once I figure out how to do it.  My former callsigns were WN5GDQ, WA5GDQ, KC5LRS, and now K5LRS.   There was a time in the past when I was consumed with ham radio, but like a lot of other hams, the kids came along with their activities and I just dropped out of ham radio altogether.  In 1991 I was once again encouraged to take the test and passed everything to back to where I had been previously.

I previously lived in Irving, Texas;  Farmersville, Texas;  Blossom, Texas; and now Fayetteville, Arkansas.  I am a rural mail carrier in Farmington, Arkansas, and I operate a part-time swimming pool service business as well.  I have been doing swimming pools for some 30 years of so and it does provide extra income for ham radio equipment.

My wife and I have been married for 34 years and we have two children and two grand-children.  My son is an Electrical Engineer and works for the University of Arkansas.  My daughter is a Landscape Architect and works for Conair Manufacturing in Springdale, Arkansas.

I am a veteran of the United States Air Force and served two one year tours of duty in Vietnam as a Combat Controller with the 4440th Combat Crew Training Squadron in Vietnam.

My current station consistes of a Kenwood TS930S/AT Transceiver, Kenwood TL-922 Amp, Dentron MT3000A Tuner, running to a GR5V about 60 feet off the ground.  My back-up station runs on 12V DC and is hooked up to a pair of boat batteries and it consists of a Yaesu FT757 GXII Transceiver, Yaesu FC-757AT Automatic Antenna Tuner, running to an inverted V antenna about 30 feet off the ground.

I operate and maintain four packet nodes in the area as well as a MSYS Packet Radio BBS system.  My BBS system can be found on 145.61 which can be connected to direct or via the HOG or NWAR61 nodes.  My JNOS station is accessable direct or via the NWAR9 or AROK51 packet nodes operating on 145.51.   K5LRS will access the MSYS System on 145.61 and K5LRS-1 will access the JNOS Station on 145.51.

I hope you find this information helpful and maybe give you a little insight into my world of amateur radio. Thanks for reading this page and please continue on to the other pages as listed above or below.
