Web Site Reviews from Spectrum (The NHCA Newsletter)

Starting in 1997 Lee Hager began reviewing selected Internet sites for our print publication Spectrum. In 2000 Rob Pluta took over the review process. Inclusion of links on this page in no way suggests review or approval by NHCA of the materials included on the linked pages.

NHCA is providing this as a service for those interested in noise and hearing issues. As with many lists of links some may not work or have disappeared since review. Here's the complete collection of web site reviews presented without further comment:
