100 years of Naval Communications Training

at Flensburg-Mürwik


Last transmission by DHJ61 and
DLØMFS amateur radio operation


In cooperation with the Marinefunker-Runde, the Naval Communications School did a single side good-bye telegraphy transmission using the original call sign of the Naval Communications School Flensburg-Mürwik "DHJ 61" on the frequencies 12.410,5 and 8.443,5 kHz (in form of the Naval Communication Exercise NAVCOMEX) from May 4th to 5th, 2002, to commemorate the 100 years of naval radio history at Flensburg-Mürwik.

The last CW transmission by DHJ 61
on 5th May 2002 at 15:00 UTC


The transmitting units were located inside the school building of the Naval Communications School which closed its gates for ever in September 2002. Generations of naval radio operators received education there to enable them coping with their tasks onboard the vessels of the German fleets which frequently used to be rather sophisticated. Contents of the radio transmissions included historic and up-to-date texts of the Germany Navy and international navies as well as shipping trade information in general.


The Naval Communications School’s amateur radio club station DL Ø MFS (MF No. 600) with the special DOK MF was activated on all MF-Runde scenes of action, both in CW and in SSB, simultaneously with the single side transmissions. This station will again be kept at the location of the previous Naval Communications School not only for memory but also to express its close bonds with the tradition of naval radio/signal training at Flensburg-Mürwik.

This way there will be chance to achieve the necessary points for the 25-year jubilee award of the Marinefunker-Runde e.V. (see under "Diploma Information") in the future too.
