JESSEN/WITTENBERG – The WRTC 2018 organization, which will be hosting the eighth international World Radio Team Championship amateur radio operating competition in two years, has reached a new stage in its fundraising efforts with the successful launching of its tent sponsorship campaign.  Announced in early March, the WRTC volunteers have successfully gathered support from the amateur radio community to support the naming of 20 percent of the 63 tents that will be used by competitors during the event.

Groups or individuals who sponsor one of the 63 tents that house the competitor teams during WRTC 2018 are recognized before and during the event in print, web and all other communications.  Support to date has included some of the most prominent clubs and organizations in contesting. These include:

  • Arizona Outlaws Contest Club
  • In Memoriam Carl D. Cook - AI6V
  • Bavarian Contest Club (2 Zelte)
  • Contest Club Finland & Finnish Amateur Radio League
  • Dave and Barb Leeson (W6NL/K6BL)
  • DARC Distrikt Berlin
  • In Memoriam Jörg Puchstein - DL8WPX
  • Frankford Radio Club
  • In Memoriam Rich Strand - KL7RA
  • Lagunaria DX Group
  • Northern California Contest Club
  • Pizza Lovers 259 (PL259)
  • Society of Midwest Contesters (2 Zelte)
  • Team K3LR


The naming of WRTC tents as a tribute to well-known contesters who have passed away in recent years is a unique and powerful way of cherishing their memory as well as supporting competition in the sport they loved.

Plenty of opportunities are still available for those who are interested in supporting WRTC 2018 in Germany to show their support in this unique and highly visible way.  Please contact Michael Hoeding at This email address is being protected from spambots.
