HSC Club Stations

The HSC is running the three Club Stations DLØHSC, DKØHSC and DAØHSC. In 2011 the HSC additionally runs the special station DL6ØHSC on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the HSC. The club stations are QRV on several occasions like contests, hamfests and they broadcast our monthly HSC Bulletin.

QSL card DL0HSC DLØHSC is our oldest club station, which has been established by our former President Edgar Schnell, DL6MK (19, SK).

Today it is used particularly for broadcasting the monthly HSC Bulletin (No. 1 in June 1980). Tom, DL2FAK (921), succeeded Edgar.

From April 1994 to January 2012, Alf, DL1TL (18) has been the operator at DLØHSC. Alf broadcasted the monthly HSC bulletin for almost 18 years from his location in Leverkusen, Germany. Since January 2012 Joe, DK7VW (1709) is the responsible operator at DLØHSC.

HSC Bulletins:
  • The HSC bulletins are broadcasted on the first Saturday of each month.
  • At 15 UTC the broadcast takes place on 7,025 KHz in English language.
  • At 21 UTC (20 UTC during daylight saving time) in German language on 3,555 KHz.
Speed is about 20 wpm. The transmission will be followed by a ZAP traffic. After that, the bulletin will be repeated at 35 wpm.

And of course, all HSC club stations issue membership numbers. DLØHSC is no. 1001.


QSL card DL0HSC Over the years we used different themes for QSL cards. The one shown on the left was used on occasion of the 50th Anniversary of HSC in 2001.

In the past, DLØHSC occasionally participated in DXpeditions to HV, 5B, 9H, FC and other countries.

On the right you see the theme of a QSL card usable for two call signs. This one was used for DKØHSC.

At the beginning of the 1980's, DKØHSC has been established by Edgar, DL6MK to have a second club call. After he became an SK, Ernst, DL1PM (14), became responsible. He runs DKØHSC until he died in early 2004. After that, Fred, DL3ZI (229) holds the call until December 2007. Starting 2008, OM Wang, DK4AN (771) is running DKØHSC.

DKØHSC issues HSC no. 1551.

QSL card DK0HSC DKØHSC got his own QSL card theme on occasion of the 50th Anniversary of HSC. The special DOK HSC50 has been issued to all three HSC club stations for a limited time in 2001 enhancing our festivities.

If you are collecting DOK numbers for the German DLD Award, you may work one of the HSC club stations: Only these three stations issue the special DOK HSC nowadays. For evaluation of the German DTC Contest and WHSC Award, QSOs count twice or triple.

Last but not least, the HSC holds the special call sign DAØHSC under supervision of the HSC President Hans, DK5JI (911).

DAØHSC issues membership no. 1688.


QSL card DA0HSC In the past, DAØHSC has been activated by several radio amateurs at hamfests, contests and other occasions.

The last time, DAØHSC has been activated, was during HSC Contest in February 2003 by HSC Contest Manager Lutz, DL3BZZ (1730).
