WX4ME Stu Kratz (Silent Key)
Stu Kratz WX4ME
Stu held many positions in the Bullitt ARS over the years and was selected as BARS Amateur of the Year twice. When the BARS club was needing to locate a new meeting place, it was Stu that came through quickly and found our current home at the Pioneer Village City Hall. Stu was KO4BI for years but weather spotting was his passion, hence the vanity call WX4ME. He was instrumental in getting an amateur station at the Louisville Weather Service office and manned the station many times. Stu also helped produce the Bullitt ARS newsletter in the late 80's and early 90's. Stu can count many amateurs among his protege's and he was a consumate elmer.
