Monitoring Times Going QRT

Monitoring Times magazine will be shutting down after its December 2013 issue. Publisher Bob Grove told contributors in an e-mail that, after 33 years, he and his wife, Judy, have decided to retire. He also said that "a combination of a down-turned economy, as well as the ready availability of free listening and technical information on the Internet, has reduced sales and subscriptions throughout the marketplace."
The impending closure of MT will leave CQ's sister publication, Popular Communications, as the only national magazine serving shortwave listeners, CBers and scanning enthusiasts.
