Tom- I agree that it is an essential reference for Hams, especially me. ( I need all the help I can get).
However, one of the main limitations of any reference is the index; if it's not listed there, information is lost. The new CD versions make up for the bad indexing because they are searchable; That feature does not depend on the personal whims of editors.
