Warren W1GUD – sk 2015

Posted: May 5, 2017 by nz1q in SK

FLAM Group will forever be grateful to Warren for fostering the Florida AM Group and the weekly AM net that he loved to host as net control.

Warren had been a ham for around 50 years, starting in New England and finally settling in Florida. He was a constant source of guidance and inspiration, not only in AM radio but personally for many of us and for all amateurs in which he came in contact with. Warren also started this site for the purpose of building interest in AM and vintage AM gear.

Warren and his lovely wife Lona lived in Tampa, FL.     W1GUD continues on as Lona’s call sign and can often be heard on the Sunday morning AM net.

Born in New York City in 1951, Warren grew up in Stamford, Connecticut, and moved to Tampa from Youngstown, Ohio, in 1982 to work for WTVT, Channel 13, covering Pinellas County and later Tampa.

He stayed with the station for nearly 30 years before retiring in 2011, covering politics, police, courts and his favorite beat: NASA and the shuttle program at Kennedy Space Center.

Warren, W1GUD was last heard on March 29, 2015 checking into the FLAM Group Sunday morning net.
