World Championship ended with a great closing ceremony

The winners of the World Championship of Radio Amateurs are from Lithuania. Gedas Lucinskas (LY9A) and Mindis Jukna (LY4L) won ahead of the German team with Manfred Wolf (DJ5MW) and Stefan von Baltz (DL1IAO) from Baden-Württemberg. In third place are Chris Hurlbut (KL9A) and Daniel Craig (N6MJ), who became world champions four years ago in Boston.

In total, radio amateurs from all over the world were reached by the 63 competition teams with 262,746 contacts during the 24-hour competition. More than 40 nations were represented in Wittenberg with the competitors and referees.

The trophies were handed over to the winning teams and all teams were very happy..

In his welcome address Christian Janßen, DL1MGB, looked back on the eventful 4 years. Especially on the performance of the great team he formed. Chris called to represent over 300 helpers, four supporters on to the stage, who have performed great work in the background. Oskar Radwan, DL3OF, and Renate Radwan, DG2HUF, managed the warehouse in Jessen. Frank Neumann, DM5WF, has explored the sites and Steffen Kaiser, DL5SFI, acted as chief photographer. They were honored with great applause and a gold medal.

The Jessen Mayor Michael Jahn expressed his appreciation and thanks to the competitors, referees and helpers. "The accomplishments of the helpers are large. To build 65 large antennas - to support the tents and the power generators - that is great. I'm convinced that you can count on radio amateurs, "he said in his speech in front of over 600 World Championship participants - because everyone who helped with this event has the right to consider himself a participant in the World Championship.

An exciting and busy week lies behind all WRTC contributors.

With regard the extensive four-year long preparation, Mayor Jahn stated: "Andreas Winter, DK4WA, and Frank Neumann, DM5WF, from Mühlberg have managed to win over the land owners for this great project. The agricultural cooperatives gladly made their land available. I am proud of our local people. Frank and Andreas gave special thanks for this incredible work in volunteering. "

The chairman of the German Amateur Radio Club, Steffen Schöppe, DL7ATE, also sent his thanks. He was represented by Ron Jerke, DG2RON, who heads the District of Brandenburg. Steffen emphasized that there were also many volunteers in the run-up to the event, who bought and processed material and used countless hours or days to organize the smooth running of the World Championship in the background.

The helpers came not only from the host country of the World Championship in Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt, but from all over Germany and also from abroad. For this he expressed his heartfelt thanks.

It got a bit more technical in a presentation from Paul Bigwood, G3WYW, the representative of prime sponsor YAESU. He reported on the history and current trends in amateur radio, from the perspective of a manufacturer. For the entire organization he found very complimentary words and expressed his thanks to the organizers.

DL8DYL talking to the WRTC media team

Wittenberg. (xv) "With 100 watts to get a pile up to North America on the low bands - that was phenomenal. I was really challenged and it was great to be able to really get into it, "enthused Irina Stieber (DL8DYL) from Dresden, expressing her personal impressions of the WRTC. Team partner of Maddin Riederer (DL4NAC) from Bayreuth, both have achieved more than 4100 QSOs and about 75% of them have been on CW. For Irina it was amazing what can be achieved with a 12m high dipolet: "I am very pleased that it was relatively easy to reach stations outside of Europe with only this transmitter power." Irina had concentrated on Morse telegraphy. In phases I managed more than 200 contacts per hour.
