On Saturday, 22nd November 2014 the WRTC2018 working group of RRDXA and BCC met in the town of Rheine near Münster for the second meeting. Chairman Christian Janßen, DL1MGB, summarized the activities of the past months, especially our succesful application.

The main subject of the meeting was the final decision on the WRTC qualification process, which defines contest and category weights. As promised, the final rules will be published by the end of November.

Other topics of the meeting were financing, foundation of the formal WRTC 2018 organization, and marketing related topics. Lots of details have been discussed and new ideas were born. For example, we consider contesting events focused on young radio amateurs as part of the WRTC2018 project.
On Sunday, a small group explored the region east of the town of Lingen, which will be one of our candidate regions. The region called "Emsland" offers a completely flat environment, thus providing a leveled playing field. Its topography will support a fair competition.

About WRTC2018

The World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC) is held every four years and consists of 50+ two-person teams of amateur radio operators from around the world competing in a test of operating skills. Unlike most on-the-air competitions, all stations are required to use identical antennas from the same geographic region, eliminating all variables except operating ability. Previous WRTCs have been held in Seattle/USA (1990), San Francisco/USA (1996), Slovenia (2000), Finland (2002), Brazil (2006), Russia (2010), and New England/USA (2014).
