To support WRTC2018 in Germany a group of US-hams lead by N1RR have organized a  multi-operator activity to participate in the WAG this weekend. They will be on the air as WR1TC, the special call sign of the WRTC 2014 at Boston.

As successfully implemented by many DXpeditions the WRTC beam will be rotated by a rotator mounted at the base of the tower supporting the beam. This setup has been successfully tested in July 2016 at five different locations of the designated contest area near the city of Jessen, situated to the south west of Berlin, Germany.

The rotator is mounted on a sturdy base plate. The telescoping tower is affixed to the top of the rotator by a set of clamps. The heavy duty G-1000 DXC rotor will be exclusively used for the WRTC event. It has been donated by our Prime Sponsor YAESU.

The organizers of the WRTC 2018 are happy to announce that ICOM Inc. will support the WRTC 2018 as Platinum Sponsor. This Japanese company has been leading in the development of novel techniques for short wave and VHF/UHF equipment for several decades. The company‘s close links to contesting can be seen in the initiative of the ICOM Contest Team and the support of the Contest University. As the main sponsor ICOM America had a great share in the success of the Olympic Games for radio amateurs in the WRTC 2014 in New England.
