Warren Sunkel (KC0LXA)

May 11, 2004

Our fellow ham and friend Warren Sunkel, sunward he has climbed high into the sunset silence. We will miss him but know he is in God's hands. ....N9AS Dedication song at: (3.5Meg file MP3)

Warren was a relatively new amateur radio operator. I don't believe there was anyone more excited about this hobby. He discovered a very knowledgable and friendly group of fellows on 3875 and because of his wonderful personality, his wit and his vast knowledge on a variety of subjects - become personal friends with everyone - and we were all better for having known him if only for this short time. We have all lost a friend. Warren will be sadly missed.

Warren was a good friend and a valuable member of the Douglas County Amateur Radio Club in Lawrence,Kansas. He served as an officer and participated in most of our club activities and readily volunteered for many of our community service communications events, like the bike rides. KC0LXA provided a certain class to the radio and was always ready to talk to most anyone on our local repeater as our unofficial “Repeater Greater”. I am submitting a picture of Warren when he was at one of our club activities. Warren will be missed by all.

I hate to have to say "Warren was" rather than "Warren is". That hurts. I met him on air shortly after he got his license, and not long after I'd had mine - he was the only one on our local 2m repeater after midnight when I got off work, and we spent many a night talking into the wee hours on that repeater, which he just happened to be able to hit perfectly from his hilltop some distance away. I remember many sweltering summer night drives on my way home ragchewing and having a blast, parking in the driveway to continue conversations way past any decent hour. He was excited about the hobby and had been listening to us for awhile, he said, and when he got his he just jumped in with both feet and had a ball. I'm going to miss you, Warren. I hope the weather is perfect where you're at, every signal is 599, and propagation is unlimited. 73.
