With a sad heart the DARC Family mourns the passing of AE5BK (SK) – wonderful mentor and friend.

“From the family: It’s with a heavy heart that I announce the death of my father William Krueger (AE5BK). He suffered a heart attack January 12, 2017 and the doctors were not able to resuscitate him. He has been in a deep coma in Italy since before Halloween. He fell and hit his head while he was on a Mediterranean Cruise vacation. It is unknown how long it will take to get his remains back to Texas. I just want to say that I am honored to have him as my father. RIP”

Bill was Known as “Mr. PVC” for his love of experimenting with radio’s and antennas built out of common components.. He just loved to design, tinker and create cool things out of PVC and was always eager to share them with the HAM radio community.

73!  From the DARC Family, You will be missed.

  1. Bill was always willing to share his tools and his many tips and tricks for building interesting things. I was always glad to listen when he had something to share. I’m sad he’s no longer with us.
