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.
