The end of an era

If you've been around radio scanners and scanning for long, you know all about Police Call. Police Call is the source for frequency information.

Well, Wired is reporting that Gene Hughes, the man who started and has published Police Call since 1964, is retiring. Worse yet, the 2005 edition will be the last. Gene thinks that the Internet has effectively replaced the printed book as a resource.

Gene, don't do it! Retire if you like, but please pass Police Call along to someone to continue. There are still things in your books that the Internet doesn't know about or get right.

This is too important a resource to loose.
