Short historical summary


From the very beginning until today the at the time called "Technical College Mittweida", later "University of Engineering Mittweida" (which today is the "Mittweida University of Applied Sciences") including employees and students plays an propulsive part in developing, propagation and contact with electrical engineering and based on this, with radio engineering.


In the German Reich the Technical College of Mittweida was authorized to radio for "experimental purposes only". The following callsigns were used:

  • 1924: K4
  • 1925: K-K4(first K for Germany(More)
  • 1926: K4AET
  • 1927: EK4AET
  • 1929: D4AET (first D for Germany, starting 01.01.1929)(More)
  • 1933: all authorizations terminated
  • 1935: D2DA issuance of new trial licenses for universities and schools (More)

Club Stempel

  • 1924: foundation of the "Association for radio transmission Mittweida and surroundings"

First president: Dr. phil. Willi Luthe, Technical College of Mittweida. Coincident foundation of the „Radioclub Mittweida“( student association) which only lasted for half a year. Cofounder Hans Teuchert became president in 1929 and later local chairman of the DASD.

  • 1927: apprenticeship "radio technology" at the Technical College of Mittweida
  • 1932: new short-wave transmitter

  • 1933: already 70 members ("Association for radio transmission Mittweida")
  • 1934: laboratory tutorials for high frequency –and radio technology with the amateur short-wave transmitter D4AET
  • 1937: similiar tutorials with amateur radio transmitter D2DA

  • 1952: continuation for the purposes of the "Association for sport and technology"(GST), department for sports news at the Mittweida College of Engineering
  • 1954: amateur radio club station at the Mittweida College of Engineering opens its doors

  • 1980: issuance of new callsign Y32ZN

  • 1992: callsign DKØMIT
  • 1993: cooperation of the clubstation and the professional group for "Communication Technology" for several years, parts at the time current antenna technology were used by both sides.
  • 2005: use of amateur radio technology for solving telemetrical problems within the apprenticeship for geoinformatics
  • 2008: D-Star repeater DMØMW established.
