New comer in Germany and need help for callsign

Beitrag von F5IXR » 4. Apr 2020, 15:14

Hello all,
My name is Laurent, living in Fassberg (low-saxe) and working as civilian for French Army.
i am sorry but i don't speak German , only english en french.

I practice radio since 1992, my french callsing is F5IXR.
I have activated some countries like Mali as TZ5XR.

I have stopped radio since i moved in Germany, but i would like to restart again.

I tried find way to get a German callsign but all document are in German and it is very difficult for me to understand all, even with translator.

If someone can help me to get it, i will appreciate.

Best 73's

You can get a "guest license" in Germany. For a short time (I think 1 month) it is free.
A longer guest license for 1/4 year costs unfortunately.
If you make a new german license it costs about € 180,-.
If you will be moving to or staying in DL for more than 3 months ... (non-German citizens only!), then this is normally not a problem. You can apply for a permanent German Amateur Radio License with call sign. If you have a CEPT License, submit a copy of your HAREC certificate, your passport and your working and/or residence permit (EU-citizens: submit a copy of the registration form from the local Einwohnermeldeamt) to the BNetzA office in Dortmund. If you wish, you can state the call sign that you wish to have (if it's available!). List a few possible calls. If you have no CEPT license, please submit a copy of your passport, your working and residency permits, as well as a copy of your own Amateur Radio license (if possible submit an English or French translation of it, but for U.S. licenses a translation is not necessary) to the BNetzA office in Dortmund. In either case: do not hesitate to contact the office if you have further questions. They will give you the needed information: Bundesnetzagentur (BNetzA), Alter Hellweg 56, 44379 Dortmund, Germany. Phone: +49-(0)208-4507-265, Fax: +49-(0) 231 99 55 - 260, E-Mail:
Have fun
