I am sad to report that Dan passed away in 2018
If there was any doubt this line on the tribute page confirms it
As much as Dan loved oscilloscopes, he also loved radio. I'm convinced
that he knew the location of every AM, FM, and TV station in the
country, as well as the coordinates of their antennas, the height of
their towers, and their effective radiated power.
