Monitoring Times is a magazine published by Bob Grove, that deals with amateur radio (this encompasses shortwave, scanning, ham radio and satellite radio).  It truly is a vitally important magazine for anyone who likes to play with an antenna, rip open a plastic case to play with the boards inside, or just twist a dial in an attempt to find a signal they have never heard before.

I have heard the magazine described as "the TV Guide for shortwave listeners", which it is, but usually it's much more.  I have learned about other areas of amateur radio that I was unaware of, and most importantly I have learned via editorials of stupid legislation being proposed that would limit what people could listen to.
