    I lurk on the other site and saw that it was discovered that JohnH who used to post the uplinks here and helped with their uplinking program passed away in early August.

    RIP

    Thanks for passing that along. John was obviously the inspiration behind the reports I continue to make here. Trying to make them as easy as possible to read (although DISH keeps changing trival stuff).

    He remains an inspiration and will be missed.

    I didn't know him well, or really at all... though I'm sure I traded some comments with him back when he used to do the Uplink reports here.

    I do know that he was well liked and people had been missing him since he slowed down on posting a while back... and I'm sure those who knew him well are missing him more after hearing this news.

    I hate to hear this. JohnH was always very helpful when he was doing uplink reports. He will be missed for sure.
