About a hundred days before the start of WRTC 2018, it's time to take a look at the fundraising status.

Rudolf DJ3WE, who took over the management of the fundraising team at the beginning of the year, informs us that so far donations of about €500,000 have been received. Rudolf has been part of the fundraising team since 2016 working with our major sponsors including YAESU and WiMo. He brings along the necessary skills for dealing with business partners through over 30 years of professional experience in various business positions.

The ongoing Russian DX Contest will include a significant number of WRTC teams testing equipment and operating. RDXC is the ideal contest for that: it is mixed mode and has a M2 category, allowing the simultaneous operation of two radios. This is quite similar to WRTC rules, so many teams will bring their filters and triplexes into action.

We heard rumors that Manfred DJ5MW, is traveling to Sweden to join Stefan DL1IAO, for a test with SM9A. Tim K3LR, is coming to Germany to operate DR8A with his team mate Sandy DL1QQ. DA0AA is "manned" by Maddin DL4NAC and Irina DL8DYL. Whereas RDXC will deliver nice pile-ups the teams will probably also need time to optimize their equipment.

Thus the final score achieved in RDXC will be not the main priority because the score in the World Radiosport Team Championship in July 2018 will be the final destination of each team’s four year journey.

If your are a WRTC competitor or work one of teams testing please drop a comment or a sound snippet on our facebook page at
