New Orleans

This is the home page of N5OGW. My QTH is Metairie, LA a suburb of New Orleans. I am located just a few miles from Lake Pontchatrain. New Orleans is home to many diverse activities. These include Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest, along with great outdoor sports like hunting, fishing, boating and much more. Our state motto, “Sportsman’s Paradise” is not an idle boast.


About My Family And Me

Let me introduce myself. My name is Ira and I have been a ham for the last 20 years. I currently hold an Advanced Class license and am interested in HF, contesting and ATV. 

I am also a retired Navy Senior Chief Operations Specialist having served 28 years. Most of that time was served attached to Naval Special Warfare.

My wife Debbie is KD5BPS and is licensed as a no-code tech. We have been married for the last 23 years and have twin 14 year old sons . Henry, KD5BPR, currently holds a tech plus license while David is interested in the Performing Arts.

We are active members of the Jefferson Amateur Radio Club (JARC) located in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana. As a past president of the club, I am naturally proud of what our club has to offer. My son Henry currently serves as an elected board member. Please visit our club’s web site.
