2 Dec 2006, it is with great sorrow that I have to report the passing of one of the important people in the satellite tracking world. David Ransom was both a good friend and a teacher and I will miss our discussions and emails we shared over the past 20 years. David will be sorely missed and I would ask that you remember his family in this time of loss. David's WEB site (www.dransom.com) has be shut down, however his memory will last for many years to come.
