Ken Ernandes, N2WWD told AMSAT the sad news of the passing of STSORBIT
PLUS author David Ransom on 5 November 2006. While not a ham, Dave was
a long-time supporter of AMSAT and a major player in providing Space
Shuttle orbital data to the AMSAT and NASA communities. Dave and Ken
worked collaboratively to modify STSORBIT PLUS such that it would provide
[manual] Doppler tuning information, thus making the software a useful
tool for amateur satellite communications.
Amateur Satellite operators around the world will remember Dave for his
contributions to AMSAT and will miss him.
[ANS thanks Ken Ernandes, N2WWD for the above information]
