Elecraft becomes Silver Sponsor of WRTC 2018
The organizers of the WRTC 2018 are proud to announce that Elecraft will support the WRTC 2018 as a Silver Sponsor.
Michael Höding, DL6MHW, Vice President of the WRTC 2018 Organizing Committee said: „It is with great pleasure that we announce that Elecraft will become a Silver Sponsor for the WRTC 2018. It was at Dayton 2016 that Eric Swartz WA6HHQ, CEO of Elecraft, offered support but we needed some time to finalize the arrangements.”
The Californian company have developed top quality radios since the change of the millennium. The legendary K2 started as a QRP transceiver offering high end receiving characteristics and extraordinary low power consumption. Whereas the K2 was delivered as a kit for self assembly the following K3 model made the step up to a fully built radio. It combines low weight with high end characteristics. It is therefore the choice of many DXpeditions and was also utilized by many of the teams during the WRTC in 2014 which Elecraft also supported as a sponsor.
Elecraft's philosophy of sharing knowledge supported by excellent building manuals appeals to many hams. Eric was also a lecturer at the Contest University in Friedrichshafen in 2016.
WRTC 2018 e.V. is grateful for this most generous support from Elecraft.
WRTC 2018 is coming - 500 days to go
Often the WRTC is rightly referred to as the Olympic Games of Radio Sport. “Olympiad” originally meant the the period between the actual Olympic Games. There are now just 500 days in our “Olympiad” until the opening ceremony. A lot has already happened - but there is still a lot left to be done and time flies.
