I am sad to report that Walter Wenzel, KA2RGI, formerly of West Babylon, Long Island NY, became a SK on 12/24/19. Walter was extremely involved in the amateur radio scene on LI from the early 1980's until just a few years ago when he relocated to NC. In addition to holding leadership positions in ARES, RACES, Skywarn, and the ARRL (Walt was the SM for NLI in the late 80's/early 90's), he was a multiple time club president for the Great South Bay ARC, and taught hundreds of students in licensing classes over the decades and helped hundreds get licensed or upgrade through his work as a VE. He also taught classes on antenna theory, repeater building/maintenance, CW, VHF/UHF, and many other subjects over the years. He also ran a small business engraving call sign license badges (W&R Enterprises) and could be seen at most hamfests in the NYC metro area for many years. We'll miss you, Walt!
