You may have noticed this new acronym popping up on some of our products. RoHS stands for Restrictions on Hazardous Substances, and it's a directive that could have a huge impact on the production and disposal of consumer electronics. First adopted in Europe in 2006 (and later adopted in California in 2007), RoHS restricts the use of six dangerous substances in lots of common electronics. According to the official RoHS compliance Web site (www.rohs.eu), the RoHS symbol indicates that "new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market does not contain any of the six banned substances: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, poly-brominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), in quantities exceeding maximum concentration values."
While some military and medical equipment is exempt from RoHS compliance, the electronics governed by the standard are among the most common you'll find in your home, from radios to MP3 players to cell phones and (increasingly) computers. In practical terms, the standard protects factory workers at the production level, sharply reducing their exposure to hazardous substances. The standard also has a profound impact on the disposal and recycling of electronics, in that disposed substances will no longer have at least six of the most hazardous chemicals formerly found in electronics, and recycled electronics will not expose workers to toxics as they harvest components.
Radio on the Road: The Traveler's Companion by William Hutchings lists just about every AM and FM station in the U.S. Over 15,000 listings are arranged by state, then by city, call letters, frequency, and format. Lists top talk show hosts with stations and times for each state. Home team stations are listed for baseball and football. Also includes a complete listing of NPR stations by location. Excellent for travel. 283 pages.
Now for the rest of the story (by Bob Crane):
There will be times in perpetuity when a computer doesn't cut the mustard. I still read the Wall Street Journal in paper format. It is just plain easier to grab a book when you want to know the frequency or city of a radio station. And with a pencil you can add a note! Try that Mr. Computer - Ha!
We carried White's Radio Log and felt an empty spot when they stopped issuing new releases. When I heard Bill Hutchings was ready to publish his first edition I called and was happy to get set up as a dealer and we've carried Radio on the Road ever since. He has recently sold the rights, but Bill still helps the new publisher get the data ready. With a website like Radio-Locator.com you really don't need Bill's book but he knows that. That's why he focused the content on travel and gives you a good idea of where your favorite shows are. You also get the bonus of a concise information center about radio stations that are on air in your area which is awkward on a computer.
