For Which Browsers?

The pages are arranged in such a way that they can be viewed, in principle, with all browsers. Naturally, one must make compromises: in particular the layout does not look any longer as well as in the case of older browsers. The consideration of the operation characteristics of newer browsers happens, if necessarily, only after previous tests by means of Javascript scripts.


Navigation elements are in the heading underneath the title “DARC’s district of Sachsen-Anhalt (W)” which can be retrieved in the same way on each page.

On the left side you recognise the hierarchy structure (so called bread-crumbs trail), the hierarchy structure level can be discerned by the sign “>”.

On the right side there are important tools, so e.g. the possibility to change between German and English versions, the link to the table of contents (also site map) and a link to this help page. The individual tools are separated with the delimiter “|”.

There is a navigation bar on the left side of each page. It contains important links to similar pages, but not all possible links. The links are selected in such a manner that they refer to the information presented. The links are subdivided into logical groups. In any case, the two topmost links always lead up to the home page and/or table of contents.

On extensive pages you will find a page’s table of contents underneath the main title. You can achieve faster certain information on the page with this tool.

The table of contents (also site map), which is attainable from all pages, lists all pages of the Martin Luther University Amateur Radio Club.

Key Access

Some frequently used or important links are additionally attainable using a special key combination (also access keys). These links can be seen from the coloured emphasized letter and/or a number of the writing. You will reach this link if you press the Alt key as well as the key specified by the coloured letter/number. Note that this feature is available only in the case of the Internet Explorer 5.5, Netscape 6.0 and/or Mozilla and upwards.

Does Javascript or Java have to be absolutely activated?

No. As said, maximum support becomes only possible by Javascript, however the contents are not affected by the deactivation (only the date of the last modification of the document is not shown any longer). Java scripts are not at all used on this site.


Cookies are not used.
