Walter Schemmel (W9LVM)

Nov. 2, 2003

My Dad W9LVM passed away om Sunday Nov. 2, 2003! He has been a Ham since April 1933 and his main thing in Ham Radio was morse code. I have his log from 1933 and it has helped me to know my Dad as he was in 1933! Ken Scemmel WA9JYG

My Dad was a Ham since 1933 and had his first station on Tripp Ave in Chicago, Illinois in a basement with a dirt floor! I remember all the years growing up with my Dad and going to the Hamfests with him. He was on the air til his last days and I will never forget him and to honor his memory I am going to get his call sign so he will always be a part of my life and hobby!
