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

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 non-DL members to contact their telecommunication authorities in order to get permission to use a call sign similar to "xx65HSC". QSLs should be printed and handled by the applicant. They should be aware that HSC won't be able to cover any expenses.

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

The HSC issues an award for which all HSC-CW-QSOs are valid for the award if made during the month May 2016. Work as many HSC members and club calls as you can! The following rules apply:

1. Date: May 1st to 31st, 2016

2. Mode: CW (A1A)

3. Valid QSO: QSO with HSC members count 1 point. They count only once, regardless of band.
