Joerg Klingenfuss – Five new products for Dxers

Dear friends,

five new products for 2010

– 2010 Super Frequency List on CD
– 2010 Shortwave Frequency Guide
– 2010 Frequency Database for the PERSEUS Software-Defined Receiver
– 1997-2010 Digital Data Decoder Screenshots on CD
– Free Supplement January 2010 to the
2009/2010 Guide to Utility Radio Stations

have been published on 8 December. We’ve worked around the clock and hundreds of advance orders have been mailed by Thursday 10 December, i.e. well in time for the Christmas holiday and radio monitoring season. Enjoy!

Larry Magne’s Passport to World Band Radio has been discontinued:
there will be no 2010 edition and beyond. By consequence, our 2010
Shortwave Frequency Guide remains the only international handbook
that gives you full schedule details for each entry in the unique
broadcast frequency list, e.g.

4824.4 – La Voz de la Selva – Iquitos – PRU – 01.00-03.00 – Sp – dom –

7210.0 – All India Radio – Kolkata – IND – 04.00 – 05.00 – En Hi Bg –
dom – Sat Sun

11675.0 – Radio New Zealand International – Rangitaiki – NZL – 04.59-
06.58 – En – Pa – DRM

On our updated website

you can download full A4 size PDF sample pages of our latest printed
products as well as the new 2010 catalogue, plus detailed product
descriptions, sample pages, screenshots, and a list of dealers
worldwide – from Australia to the United States of America!
Alternatively, you may ask for our free 24-pages 2010 printed
catalogue to your postal address.

Deadline for the very latest 2010 broadcast schedules published in
the brandnew Shortwave Frequency Guide was on 20 November 2009.
Unlike traditional publications in this field, our clear layout and
new typeface provides for excellent legibility. See the brandnew PDF
sample pages!

Apart from the usual up-to-date broadcast and utility station and
schedule databases, the 2010 Super Frequency List on CD now covers
353 fascinating new digital data decoder screenshots from
professional HF stations around the globe.

Our product Digital Data Decoder Screenshots on CD now covers more
than 7,000 (seven thousand!) digital data decoder screenshots from
1997 to today, essentially produced with WAVECOM equipment. Feed your Windows PC with this CD, and the “slide show” will keep you busy for a few days – or weeks!

WAVECOM W-CODE is a software decoder with inputs identical to the
famous W61PC. It allows seamless integration with SDR (Software-
Defined Radio) receivers with IQ data or digital audio outputs, and
provides all functions required to analyze, decode and process data
communications throughout the complete radio spectrum (HF, VHF, UHF, SHF). MICROTELECOM’s revolutionary Perseus and the W-CODE make a real dream team!

The W61 series of Digital Data Analyzer and Decoder products is
clearly targeted at the professional market. Typical applications are
manual or automated monitoring of radio communication transmissions
in the HF + UHF + VHF + SHF + satellite bands, SIGINT, and signal
analysis and classification. The superb new software cracks 200+
modes with worldwide leading technology. Detailed information can be
found on our website and in the printed brochure available upon

As precisely predicted by ourselves – and by nobody else! – already
10 years ago in 2000, HF e-mail continues to spread rapidly and has
developed into the major application of modern digital HF techniques
that we have marketed – and used! – for years.

After Hurricane Katrina and the Indian Ocean Tsunami, Lesson # 1
says: Forget about satphone, BPL, cellphones, e-mail and Internet. HF
radio is vital!

The free Supplement January 2010 to the 2009/2010 Guide to Utility
Radio Stations can be downloaded from our website as well. Click Free

Hello friends,

From September 28. until October 4. there will be the 44. DX-Camp
of the Rhein-Main-Radio-Club in Langenselbold near Frankfurt.
As usual during the first days we’ll stick our ears and antennas out to the airwaves for real hardcore DXing, supported by lots of coffie or not so much of red vine or free beer. On friday we offer a warm or cold buffet and on saturday a warm snack.

Fr. and Sat. evening will be some lessons from Manfred Rippich about visiting broadcasting station all over the world Robert Kipp about Radio St. Helena and the St. Helena-Day Nov.09 Harald Gabler shows pictures of the new QSL-Calendar 2010

And the next sensation: The brain new DSP-High-End Receiver RDR54C1 we have got from Fa. Reuter Elekronik for some tests.

All that is the normal procedure every year, one might say, but this year is special. For the first time everyone may watch everthing happening via the magic internet!

Tuesday – Saturday 18.00- 24.00 UTC
got to: RMRC Webcam
if you will be asked for password: rmrc

Livestream is without audio at webpage

Livestream with audio go for: Link
(only, if there is no test-picture)

Some of our members or other enthusiastic DXers would like to
take part, but can’t, because of various reasons like work, time,
illness or simply ’cause of a to far distance.

For the first time you and any DXer can click in to the DX-Camp and watch, what’s going on. There will be a chat, to talk to DXers present on the event. You may ask them all sorts of questions, like what the hear and where it’s coming from. You may even follow some lectures with your own eyes and ears, even if you’re hundreds of miles away from the meeting. Chats are held in german and englisch and perhaps a mixture of everything european including hands and feet, due to the use of video. And you will get a QSL-Card from this event.

This is following the ideas of Thomas Moeller and Harald Gabler and
realisation Lutz Winkler and they hope to find lots of interested DXers to either come to the meeting, or watch it via the internet.
