Glenn Wetherell (W3GWW)

April 4, 2009

Glenn Wetherell, W3GWW, died on Saturday, April 4, 2009, after a battle with cancer.Glenn was a captivating, adventurous man who did many things - moved to Europe as a teenager, lived and married there, came back, had a large family and a multifaceted career. He was an active ham, worked for HRO in Delaware a while ago, and started up US Navigator, a company that made a very succesful line of radio interfaces. He was a man of great integrity and humor and will be sorely missed

Glenn was a kind man who always seemed to be there when you needed him. Very knowledgeable and a great resource. Have many memories seeing him at hamfests and visits at his home. Met Glenn while living in Aberdeen. He would get on 10 meters during the evenings a while back and then switched to 146.52 and talked there for a couple of years. My wife got to see him many times when she worked at Target. Many many good conversations over the air. I even helped to put up one of his antennas. He loved to talk over the air. Was a good friend to W3NFS (Bruce) and let Bruce use his radio as a repeater so Bruce could talk further with is HT. I will surely miss him

Glenn was a very good friend whom I had the privilege of knowing for more than 20 years. He introduced me to PSK-31 and my Interface is a Navigator, of course. I'll miss very much our morning coffee time visits and our chats on "52." He lived just six miles from me and it was an easy hop to his place whenever questions about PSK-31 needed personal intervention.
