I got this from the CQ newsroom.....

"FCC amateur radio enforcement chief Riley Hollingsworth, K4ZDH, has 
announced that he will retire from the Commission in early January. 
Hollingsworth has been in charge of FCC amateur rules enforcement since 1998 
and has held the title of Special Counsel for Amateur Radio since 1999. He 
has spearheaded nearly a decade of revitalized FCC enforcement activities on 
the ham bands, after some 15 years of "benign neglect" by the Commission. 
Hollingsworth assured CQ that the FCC's active enforcement of amateur radio 
rules will continue even after his retirement.

Hollingsworth is a native of South Carolina and holds a Master's degree in 
political science from the University of South Carolina as well as a law 
degree from Wake Forest University Law School. Prior to taking the reins of 
amateur radio rules enforcement, Hollingsworth served in several other FCC 
positions, including Deputy Chief of Licensing and Assistant Chief of the 
Wireless Telecommunications Bureau. He works out of the FCC's Gettysburg, 
Pennsylvania office."

That's not good news, as Riley has (IMHO) done a really fine job in that 
position, and the FCC will be hard-pressed to find anyone to fill his shoes 
half as well.....

73, Jerry K3BZ
