Update on the excel workbook.

Compiling is containing a lot of man hours. Trying to get it done as fast as humanly possible. I am a college student, so currently time isn't on my side.

In other news, thanks to the NTIA for making some listings have purposes while others don't. Some of them have a listed use while others just say "xxx net" or something similar.

It's been 39 years and I still catch myself regretting my role in getting the GMF classified. But that was a complicated time. BTW, love the term "Prelinger microfiche." If anyone happens to have a set they no longer need, I'd love to buy it as a souvenir for the Prelinger Archives. My set disappeared a long time ago.

I appreciate everything you are doing to make the data more palatable. When I posted this, I never imagined that it would generate this much interest, conversation, and effort. I'm glad I was able to spark that.

And speaking of microfiche, an old friend of mine once had possession of the FCC database on 'fiche. (This was pre-Police Call.) I remember perusing the Michigan section and gleaning quite a bit of info from it. This friend then proceeded to parse the Michigan info on his computer and sort it by county, which he then printed (dot-matrix, of course) and put in a 3-ring binder. Shortly after that, Police Call published the first Michigan/Ohio volume. I have since lost touch with him, but I'd bet that he still has that binder, the microfiche, and probably the computer and printer, too!

Howdy. Necroing this thread since I don't think it is worth starting a whole new one for continuity's sake. I'd like to provide an update on the frequency workbook I've been working on. Work stalled when I didn't have my main computer with me at college, and was slow on my laptop.

My main computer has been moved into my dorm room recently, so the pace will be picked up on the work. Let me reiterate I am a full time college student, so I'm working on this in my free time between assignments and other things I'm involved in. I plan to get this done sometime in the spring, since I'll have more time then in between classes to work on it.

If anyone would want to collaborate on this, shoot me a message and I'd be happy to have the help.
