Wittenberg. (xv) The Amateur Radio World Championship in Germany inspires whole families. An example from Chemnitz shows this: Rita Görner, DG0EQ, and her OM Carsten Görner, DG0JCG, were able to effortlessly inspire their son Tim, a short wave listener, to get involved with the helper teams. Rita and Carsten Görner have been licensed since 1992 and participate in the Chemnitz S54 radio club regularly on Field Days and other events such as the mountain day activities. The prospect of experiencing the, always very positive, Fieldday atmosphere in the WRTC 2018 AR World Cup was reason enough for the family team to get involved. 

Wittenberg. (xv) The WRTC is to be covered in two special broadcasts by Radio DARC. The radio show of the German Amateur Radio Club e.V. will broadcast a program in English on Saturday, July 14 from 11.00 to 12.00 UTC using the 49m short-wave band on 6070 kHz. Especially for the many people interested in WRTC from North America, the program will also be broadcast on 13860 kHz at the same timeThe 6-hour time difference makes it possible for the show to serve as a "breakfast radio" WRTC News on the East Coast of North America. There is expected to be a high level of interest from North America as not only did a total of 14 teams from North America qualify but also the defending champions Daniel Craig (N6MJ) and Chris Hurlbut (KL9A) are from the USA. 

Congrats zu Gilles, VA2EW! He will be the teamleader of the new wildcard team #6. As the designated team leader of 'AF' had to refuse his participation due to personal reasons this team was replaced by a wild card team. Gilles ended after the qualification for WRTC at the 2th place in the area NA#7 which only had one team available. So we are happy to have this excellent contester in our competition at WRTC2018. DL1CW remained as his team mate.
