Meet WRTC 2018 in Visalia, Dayton or Friedrichshafen
(18th April of 2017) One of the main aspects of the World Radiosport Team Championship is to bring together hams for a big international event. The preparation is supported by numerous international ambassadors. Together with the members of the organizing committee, they spread the message of ham spirit and international friendship, which makes such a big event possible.
There are always many questions regarding WRTC in common and WRTC 2018 in Germany especially. The best way to get answers and the real feeling is to meet the organizers and ambassadors in person.
Video "WRTC 2018 - The Place to Go"
The WRTC 2018 is coming! Take a look at 'The Place to Go' in 2018. The WRTC is back in Europe again.
The WRTC area of Jessen/Wittenberg, is about 100 km South of Berlin and offers a flat terrain formed in the ice age many thousands of years ago. This is an ideal natural level playing field meeting the WRTC principals.
The region also offers beautiful countryside, historic towns and awesome gardens. Our video gives you an impression of the area. View the video on Vimeo now
WRTC 2018 - is THE place to go and not only for radiosport !
Update Sponsored Teams: #2 AA3B/W2GD and #3 K3LR selected
WRTC 2018 is delighted to announce the approval of two more Sponsored Teams as we continue our consideration of several additional applications.
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.
