The WRTC 2018 Organizing Committee is proud to make the next step towards the radio championships in 2018. We are announcing the first Sponsored Team led by Rick Tavan, N6XI. He sent his application in June according after the call of May 18th, 2016.

Rick is a well-known contester from California operating in ham radio contests for more than 50 years. He was a WRTC participant in 2010, finishing 25th in a strong field of top contesters. Based on this experience Rick wrote about his objectives: “My first goal will be to place better than I did in 2010. With the experience of one WRTC from Europe under my belt, I think this is very achievable. With adequate time to prepare and a strong partner, I think a Top 10 or Top 20 result is possible.“

Sponsored teams are a long-standing tradition in WRTC and a substantial part of fundraising. Dedicated contesters who cannot qualify because of other serious commitments are given the chance to take part in the WRTC. As shown in WRTC 2014 Sponsored Teams do compete with qualified teams on the same level and have reached top scores.

We are still processing a few applications for Sponsored Teams after our first call in 2016. Now the last qualification contest is over and its raw scores are online. Therefore we invite more contesters to send their application for a Sponsored Team. The application should reflect the goals:

  1. Competitiveness
  2. Support of ham radio contesting and the spirit of the WRTC competition
  3. Enhancing technology and operating skills
