DE-"calls" are not issued by BNetzA, the German licensing authority, but by the DARC e.V. , the German Amateur Radio Club.

They are simple SWL calls and don't allow to transmit or to build a transmitter.

All info (in German) is available at

Club Log maps DE calls to "INVALID", meaning the calls are not valid for DXCC.
