Several historical figures, including the Duke of Wellington, Prince Blücher, Lord Uxbridge and the Duke of Berry, Sir Rowland Hill, Sir George Wood and Alexander Cavalié Mercer commander of a Royal Horse Artillery troop attended the event. At that time, the Foot Guards and Sir Rowland Hill were stationed in the town of Geraardsbergen (Grammont). Thanks to his cannons Captain Mercer managed to withstand three charges of the French cavalry at the Battle of Waterloo. Against the orders of Wellington, Captain Mercer’s courageous actions at Waterloo proved to be the cornerstone of the final victory over Napoleon and his French army. Captain Alexander Cavalié Mercer, later promoted to General, was born in 1783 in Kingston-upon-Hull Yorkshire, died in 1868 in Cowley, Devon. To commemorate the crossing of the river Dender from Schendelbeke to Onkerzele and the inpection of troops in Onkerzele, the UBA (Belgian Amateur Radio Society) section Geraardsbergen (Grammont) will deploy a special event amateur radio station at the location where the inspection of troops was held in 1815.

01/01/2015: 9A15P is special callsign of radio club 'Djurdjevac'. We use this special callsign throughout the year 2015 to celebrate our Legend:  ''The Legend About PICOK ''. (PICOK - nickname of the citizens of Djurdjevac) The legend dates back in the 16th century, of the Turkish invasions to south-east Europe. When Turks eventually reached the Djurdjevac fortress they encounteredunexpected resistance. Ulama-beg, the Turkish army leader, decided to siege the town in order to starve the army and the population. He might have succeeded, but the wise people of Djurdjevac outwitted him. How? Legend has it that food quickly ran out and only one little rooster remained (called PICOK in the Djurdjevac dialect). The helpless situation forced the people to consider various options to save themselves, so one old woman proposed to put the rooster in the cannon and fire it at the Turkish camp, which they did. Thinking that the town still had so much food that they could fire roosters from cannons, Ulama-beg backed down from his siege and retreated from the battlefield. As a curse, Ulama-beg called the people of Djurdjevac PICOK (English: roosters). The legend tells of the courage and prudence of the people of Djurdjevac who are proud of their history, their nickname and their rooster which is still the most common heraldic symbol of this region.

01/03/2015: Special Event Station DL1965WH to celebrates the "Double Jubilee", 50 Years AfuGrpBWStO Daun & DL1WH. Period: 01.03.2015 - 29.02.2016. Activity-modes: CW & SSB. Responsibility: DL1WH. QSL: not before 01.03.2016 !!! after that via bureau or direct via DL1WH. Die Amateurfunkgruppe der Bundeswehr am Standort Daun (AfuGrpBWStO Daun) begeht in diesem Jahr ihr 50-jähriges Jubiläum! Sie ist damit nachweislich die älteste Einrichtung ihrer Art innerhalb der Streitkräfte! Obwohl der Grundstein schon im Jahre 1961 beim damaligen FmBtl 51 in Bergisch-Gladbach gelegt wurde, gründete sich die Gruppe erst nachhaltig in Folge der Verlegung des Bataillons im Jahre 1965 in Daun. Nach anfänglichen Schwierigkeiten mussten sich viele Dinge im Laufe der Jahre erst „erkämpft“ werden, denn der Amateurfunk war (und ist) innerhalb der Bundeswehr eine Betreuungseinrichtung der besonderen Art. Diese aufrecht zu erhalten bedarf großer Anstrengungen und einem langen Durchhaltewillen, denn wie überall lässt der Support für solche Einrichtungen aus betriebswirtschaftlichen Gesichtspunkten stark nach. Aber auch die personelle Unterstützung ist ein wichtiger Faktor - wer kennt das nicht von jeder „normalen“ Clubstation … oft ist die Schließung solcher Einrichtungen mit den dazugehörigen Gruppen die zwangsläufige Folge. Über den langen Zeitraum haben Generationen von Wehrpflichtigen, die in der Heinrich-Hertz-Kaserne in Daun ihren z.T. bis 15-monatigen Wehrdienst abgeleistet haben und im Besitz einer Amateurfunklizenz waren, ihre knappe und unregelmäßige Freizeit infolge des Wechselschichtdienstes in der Amateurfunkgruppe verbracht. Aber auch Zeit- und Berufssoldaten sowie zivile Mitarbeiter bzw. Lehrgangsteilnehmer fanden hier eine Heimstatt für ihr faszinierendes Hobby. Nach einigen notwendigen Umzügen innerhalb der Liegenschaft, vielen zigtausend Funkkontakten, zwei erfolgreich durchgeführten Amateurfunklehrgängen, mehreren Ausstellungsbetrieben, interessanten Funk-Expeditionen nach Morokulien und zweimal zum Europarat nach Strasbourg, dem Betreiben der Sonderstationen „50 Jahre Bundeswehr - DR5ØBUND“ und „60 Jahre NATO - DR6ØNATO“, Besuch von vielen Amateurfunkausstellungen, Messen und Treffen und summa sumarum unzähligen Arbeitsstunden, blicken wir auf erfolgreiche 50 Jahre zurück. Nachdem Hans-Dieter Traxel (DK5PZ) als jahrzehntelanger Leiter und Macher der Einrichtung im Jahr 2014 in den verdienten Ruhestand gegangen ist und das QRL somit verlassen hat, übernahm der langjährige stellv. Leiter Volker Schnitzius (DL1WH) dieses Amt und wird versuchen, es im besten Sinne für den Amateurfunk weiterzuführen. Da auch er im Jahre 2015 das gleiche Jubiläum begehen wird wie die AfuGrpBWStO Daun, wurde aus diesem Anlass bei der Bundesnetzagentur in Dortmund das Sonderrufzeichen DL1965WH beantragt und genehmigt. Ab dem 01. März 2015 wird dieses ungewöhnliche Rufzeichen für ein Jahr lang auf den Funkbändern erscheinen und in den Betriebsarten Sprechfunk-Einseitenband (SSB) sowie Telegrafie (CW) auf das „Doppel-Jubiläum“ hinweisen. QSL-Karten werden erst nach Ablauf der Rufzeichenzuteilung im Jahre 2016 versendet! Dieser Austausch erfolgt wie immer zuverlässig über das QSL-Büro des DARC. Direktanfragen bitte nur in Ausnahmefällen, die Beantwortung erfolgt in Ermangelung von QSL-Karten in 2015 ebenfalls erst im Jahre 2016!
