100 years of Naval Communications Training
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.
