No, the failure to list a court date or info doesn't render the ticket void or make it to where it can be dismissed. The ticket itself can be amended all the way through trial, but usually the DA will file a different document, usually an "information", that is the actual charge.
You can object that the ticket fails to property apprise you of the charges against you and the date of the hearing, but the court will likely send you a notice and if the DA asks the court will allow them to amend it and make it more specific.
The fact that the signature is illegible doesn't make a difference but if I saw that I would think that the last name of the person who operated the radar was English (as in John English).
