The WRTC 2018 Organizing Committee, host of the 2018 World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC) in Germany is pleased to announce that the application process for individuals that would like to participate in WRTC 2018 as a Team Leader is now open. Team Leader applications must be submitted no later than August 15, 2017.

WRTC is a competition among two-operator teams. A total of 63 Team Leaders will be selected from the top qualifiers in 29 regions from around the world. Each Team Leader then selects their teammate for the competition.

The Team Leader qualification formula consists of 12 scores selected from 32 qualifying events between February 2015 and November 2016. Full details of the qualification process can be seen at http://wrtc2018.de/index.php/en/competition/qualification/selection-criteria-2 .

Chris, DL1MGB, president of the WRTC 2018 Organizing Committee, announced, “After two very exciting years of competition, we received the results from the final qualifying event. And now we are ready to receive the competitors' applications. It will be exciting to see who earns a place in the competition.”

Team Leaders must apply no later than August 15, 2017 to be eligible for WRTC 2018. The application form can be found on the WRTC 2018 web site at http://wrtc2018.de/index.php/en/competition/qualification/team-leader-application .

Ulf, DL5AXX, is leading the competitor selection process. “All possible Team Leaders must apply using the application form on the WRTC 2018 web site.” Ulf also encourages all of those with high rankings to apply because it is possible that some of those with higher scores in your Selection Area may choose not to apply. There will be five Wild Card Team Leaders selected from those applications that did not earn a spot as a Team Leader.

Ulf has been tracking the scores reported in the qualifying events. The 32 qualifying events included 30,814 operators who produced 141,787 scores! The qualification standings for all regions and qualifying events can be found at http://wrtc2018.de/index.php/en/competition/qualification/standings-2 .

In addition to the regional qualifying, there are also three slots dedicated to contest teams with both members less than 25 years old before July 2018. Those interested in being considered for the Youth Team must follow the Team Leader application process.

Announcement of the Team Leaders is scheduled by beginning of September. Anyone that does not apply by the deadline will not be considered.
