Late Breaking News:


Flying Horse Callbook throwing in the towel:

In 1997 the Flying Horse Callbook ceased to print their publication and went to a CD ROM format only. As of 2003 the Callbook will call it quits citing rising costs and availability of the FCC database online as limiting their sales. Callsign information is also available free at the Buckmaster and QRZ websites.
