Radio World: WRTH “lives on” and new digital option

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, David Iurescia, who shares the following article from Radio World: 

“World Radio Television Handbook” Lives On

With its comprehensive listing of radio/television stations worldwide, including their frequencies and general program content, the “World Radio Television Handbook” has been an essential companion for broadcasting listeners and radio professionals.

[…]Because books are hard to update, Radio Data Center also offers the WRTH WebApp. It is an online version of the WRTH’s content that is easy for Radio Data Center to update on a regular basis.

“An electronic product like the WebApp doesn’t have the same problems as a book that has to be printed and shipped, because it’s available online anywhere,” said Gunter.

    The problem is the web app is not an app, it’s a webpage and it requires an internet connection to use, otherwise it’s worthlesss… and I don’t have internet where I Dx.

    I bought it a year ago, found out it was useless for me after 5 minutes. Waste of money

    It appears from the language on the web site, you can only access the electronic version at a “discounted rate” if you purchased the hard copy book. There is no stand alone electronic version to purchase.
