It's very sad to hear this news about Dee. I've had the pleasure of chatting
with him on occasion, but know him mostly by his impeccable reputation as
the go-to person on so many subjects and issues dealing with ham radio.
His invaluable help on the ARISSat-1 project should also be noted. He will
be emormously missed.
