Walter Dangel, who was a founder of Sitka Amateur Radio Club, first licensed in 1956, has joined the SHARKs.

That’s the Sitka Ham Amateur Radio Klub, which has been newly established in Sitka, 60 years after Dangel, who came to Sitka with the U.S. Army during World War II, helped set up the first club.

Over the years Sitka Amateur Radio  Club has grown inactive, so to help the new one get established Dangel allowed its members to resurrect and make functional the Sitka Amateur Radio Club’s two meter repeater.

And although he’s 95, Dangel (call sign KL7BUS) still talks on the radio and became a member of  SHARK.

In appreciation of his help and interest, the new club presented Dangel with an Honorary Lifetime Membership during the group’s general meeting in April.

“Walt’s a great guy,” said Darryl Ault, president of SHARK  who helped arrange for the honorary membership. “He has some good stories to tell” about the communications ham radios operators have provided over the years.

“Walt’s inspirational, full of knowledge ... a piece of history,” Ault said.
