Saarland is one of 16 German federal states located in the south-western part of Germany. It is bounded by the state of Rhineland-Palatinate to the north and east and by the countries of France to the south and southwest and Luxembourg to the northwest. <BR> With an area of 2.570km² and a population of 1.036.598 from 2007 it is the smallest of the German area states/ The heart of Saarland is an area of thickly forested hills that is crossed from southeast to northwest by the valley of the Saar River/ The state’s highest point is the Dollberg [695m, DM/SR-001] north of Nonnweiler, the second highest is the Schimmelkopf [695m, DM/SR-002] north of Weiskirchen/ Both summits did not comply with the valid P100 rule and were deleted by the end of 2008/ Saarland’s most important summit however, is certainly the Schaumberg [569m, DM/SR-012] with its observation tower and 70 cm repeater DB0LZ. <BR> With its 569m the summit is only the seventh highest peak of the state; however it stands alone in a rather flat environment and is one of 23 summits in the Saarland fulfilling the P100 criteria. Worth mentioning is also DM/SR-082, a pile built of accumulated tailings, as by-product of mining [slag heap]/ The responsible coal mine [Bergwerk Saar] was closed in June 2005. <BR> Due to a historical particularity Saarland was its own DXCC entity [Saar] from 1950 till March 1957 with the prefix 9S4/ After a referendum in 1955, Saarland is joining the Federal Republic of Germany since 1957 and the prefix DL8 was allocated to the new state.
