With 48 years of experience in the field of worldwide radiocommunication via HF, we predicted already in 2000 that HF e-mail will continue to spread rapidly and will soon develop into the major application of modern digital HF techniques that we have marketed - and used! - for years. Interestingly enough, the immense potential of HF e-mail has not been monitored - let alone realized! - by any other author and publisher so far. Only the new Klingenfuss products for 2017 take this fascinating new trend into full consideration - now! We - who else? - provide hundreds of brandnew HF e-mail frequencies and screenshots. Among our customers are dozens of intelligence, radio monitoring and secret services worldwide: see our never-ending list of references and professional customers!
