IMPORTANT! CURRENT INFORMATION ON THE UPDATE!
Before you install the new update on your DV Euronode, please note the following: The current update may take a little longer than you expect. Sometimes it is 60 seconds, sometimes 3 to 4 minutes. This depends a little on the size of the updates, the load on the server and the local connection. At various times, the display will show "Done". In this case, however, "Done" does not mean "finished" but rather "Please be patient a little longer". The update is only really completed when "Finished" appears

SDR - Software Defined Radio, das Thema unserer neuen Detailseite. Um einen kleinen Einblick zu bekommen, was Sie dort erwartet, gibt es hier eine kurze Übersicht.
Für die "alten Hasen" ist SDR natürlich schon allgemein bekannt, aber für die "newbies", hier eine kleine Einführung. Statt die Signale bis zum Ende normal, analog zu verarbeiten, werden sie beim SDR mit einer Taktfrequenz abgetastet, digitalisiert und dann in einem Computer so digital vera

A sign against hunger!
Christmas is the celebration of love and family. To gift a smile after a hard year 2021, we have chosen a project that we want to support, for a better future.
This year for Christmas we donated 5000€ support with the work of Welthungerhilfe. Our donation helps to train women in Ethiopia how to prevent malnutrition. Worldwide, one child under the age of five dies every ten seconds as a result of malnutrition. Through our commitment, we are taking an active role in creating prospects for mothers and children in need.

Occasionally, the question arises in the circle of acquaintances, what amateur radio actually is and how one could get into it. And then it starts: "Yes, well, that..." - and already it becomes difficult.
Without question, the amateur radio hobby is complex. How do you explain it to someone in such a way that you don't forget anything, but at the same time convey the fascination of the hobby and point out the possibilities of getting started? Quite simply - with the WiMo amateur radio guide for beginners and all

The company microHAM s.r.o. (Slovakia) has been known for high-quality interfaces and accessories for radio equipment for many years. Now the manufacturer introduces a new universal rotor controller: the "ARCO". The name stands for Antenna Rotator Controller.
The ARCO is intended as a much more convenient replacement for any rotor control unit, regardless of manufacturer. The complex circuitry of the ARCO is designed to control almost any model of antenna rotator. So it doesn't matter if it's models from Yaesu, Create, SPID, Hygain, ProSisTel, M² and many more. The controller works with DC and AC motors, as sensor all common types (potentiometer, pulse, Hall encoder etc.) are handled. The extensive manual lists over 40 different rotor models that can be used. With the very widely used rotors from Yaesu,

ICOM visits Herxheim
At the end of November, the WiMo team was visited by the ICOM Europe management. Mr Shinsuke Ikegami (CEO Icom Europe) and Mr Frank Strauch (Sales Icom Europe) visited Herxheim.
In addition to the current delivery situation, they also discussed the upcoming market launch of the ID-52. The handheld flagship from ICOM is a convincing dual-band 2m/70cm radio with D-Star + NFM + FM and colour display as well as a receiver for WFM radio and V/UHF aeronautical radio. Further information can be found here in our web shop....

As a radio amateur, we always try to bridge the greatest possible distances by radio. To do this, we have almost any means at our disposal: good antennas, sufficient power, some knowledge of physics - and special phenomena in the ionosphere. This is exactly what happens with the so-called meteor scatter. The ionosphere is the upper layers of the atmosphere, the thin skin of air that surrounds the Earth. Usually, solar radiation creates an electrical charge (ionisation) at certain altitudes, which in turn causes radio waves to reflect off these ionised

We have been informed that Diamond is currently planning delivery times of up to six months due to extremely high demand and major delays in the production of individual products. This is not pleasant. Fortunately, our warehouse is well stocked with Diamond items.

New version 2021: AT-D578UV-PLUS
After the handheld radio, the mobile radio is now following suit with the corresponding features. The Anytone AT-D578UV-PLUS DMR Mobile is interesting for radio amateurs who want to do DMR on the road from their car or from home and who pay attention to quality, ease of use and reliability.
New features in the version:
- APRS reception (and transmitting anyway)
- AM aeronautical radio reception
- minor changes in various menu functions
Note: This radio is offered by Anytone in the USA under the designation AT-D578UVIII-PLUS. The difference: additional transmitting capability on the 220 MHz band, which is not allowed outside the USA.
The Antone AT-D578UV-PLUS is a true TWIN band radio for digital DMR radio systems, compatible to MOTOTRBO Tier 1 and 2 and Traditional FM is of course. The AT-D578UV...

... we hear statements like this and similar ones every day in the news and in advertising. Just a few months ago it was toilet paper. Now it's affecting articles across the board. Panic? Or a serious situation? Is it all just marketing? Let me give you a brief update on the supply situation for amateur radio from our point of view.
As we have already published several times, we changed our stock management some time ago. We have managed to keep availability high and delivery times low thanks to the larger storage area and the resulting possibility to place larger orders with our suppliers. Of course, the size of our company, which has now become the norm, has also helped us to cope with this investment. Last but not least, the entire WiMo team has done a super job here, even in difficult situations during the last 18 months! We hope that we could convince you of our performance.
Since the beginning of this...

Winter is coming and brings many a nasty surprise for radio amateurs. There is still time (and bearable weather) to think about preventive maintenance.
Yes, coaxial cables with a black sheath are UV-resistant. But this only means that they resist UV radiation from the sun longer than other materials, not forever. Because there is no 100% protection here either. The outer sheath of most coaxial cables offered today is made of PVC, which in itself offers good UV resistance. Adding black dyes (carbon black) improves this resistance even more. Nevertheless, cables used outdoors suffer, among other things, from acids such as those found in the exhaust air of chimneys. In addition, there is the constant movement around the rotor and UV radiation. Despite all protective measures, coaxial cables can become cracked after many years of outdoor use, allowing water to penetrate and permanently damage the cable at the latest with the next frost. But even without frost damage, water...

From now on, we use address data validation in the online shop.
You mistype your delivery address? No problem for WiMo!
The new address data validation identifies simple typing errors and generates a corrected address data suggestion. The best part - you decide. Does the corrected version fits or is the algorithm wrong and no correction is necessary.
What are the advantages for me?
- Delivery delays are minimised due to omitted consultations,
- Additional shipping costs due to undeliverable shipments can be avoided.
We hope the extension will support you when shopping at www.wimo.com.
If you have any questions, problems or criticism, please do not hesitate to contact us!...

This weekend, the traditional Hamfest 2021 of the USKA will take place in Möriken (CH). And actually we from WiMo wanted to be there as exhibitors to talk and celebrate with our customers and friends from Switzerland. Unfortunately, however, the Corona pandemic threw a spanner in the works this year too. The USKA took every possible care to make the meeting as safe as possible. Nevertheless, the risk seemed too high for the WiMo staff members concerned, as personal perceptions differ from person to person. Nevertheless, we wish all amateur radio friends in Switzerland and the organisers of the USKA all the best for the Hamfest, lots of fun at the get-together, and with the hope that we will see each other again next year. vy 73 Your WiMo team ...

Yes - we have started a new blog!
Here you will find information about the amateur radio community, about new products, what happens at WiMo and much more. The german section of the blog is already filled, we will publish more and more posts in english in the next days. The other languages (french, spanish, italian) will have to wait a little bit longer, I am afraid. Sorry. We invite you to enjoy the english section of our blog meanwhile.
