65 years High Speed Club - Special callsign DP65HSC



In 2016, the Radio Telegraphy High Speed Club (HSC) is celebrating its 65th anniversary. To mark this event, HSC was granted the special DOK number HSC65 to be used by its club stations DAØHSC, DKØHSC and DLØHSC throughout the year.

Furthermore, the special call sign DP65HSC was assigned to HSC to be activated exclusively in CW. It will also use the special DOK number HSC65. Its HSC number is 1951, which is the year when the HSC was founded. This station may be operated in 2016 by any German HSC member upon special application. QSL via bureau, DCL or LoTW.

The HSC would like to encourage our non-DL members to contact their telecommunication authorities in order to get permission to use a callsign similar to "xx65HSC". QSLs should be printed and handled by the applicant. He should be aware that HSC unfortunately won't be able to cover any expenses.

Amateurs attaining a minimum of 650 points in the HSC Marathon 2016 will be awarded a special trophy.
