Congrats zu Gilles, VA2EW! He will be the teamleader of the new wildcard team #6. As the designated team leader of 'AF' had to refuse his participation due to personal reasons this team was replaced by a wild card team. Gilles ended after the qualification for WRTC at the 2th place in the area NA#7 which only had one team available. So we are happy to have this excellent contester in our competition at WRTC2018. DL1CW remained as his team mate.

Wittenberg. (xv) At the World Championship, ensuring all competing teams have the same operational conditions is of core importance. This does not only apply to topographical conditions, which have recently been verified in detail. This also applies to the antennas. It's not good enough just to build the same type of antennas and get them "somewhere around"  resonance. In order to create the same conditions for all competitors great importance was placed on the accuracy of the measuring equipment to be used in this area.

Friedrichshafen. (xv) Ham Radio, the most important show for radio amateurs in Europe, was the prelude to the final spurt to the Amateur Radio World Championship in Germany for the WRTC organizing team. During the three days of the fair, information was distributed to many interested visitors at the WRTC stand. Visitors were also encouraged to participate and this effort was successful with additional volunteer helpers joining there. On the stage of the exhibition hall Chris Janßen, DL1MGB, and Michael Höding, DL6MHW, presented in words and pictures the status of the preparation processes in hand  for the WRTC. The interest level was consistently high, hardly a chair remained unoccupied. Also encouraging was the interest of the many volunteer helpers who gathered at the WRTC stand to discuss and clarify final questions about the technology in use and general organization. Manfred Wolf DJ5MW, a participant from the 2014 World Championships was available at the WRTC stand to answer all visitors questions. Concurrently the organizing team used the Hamfest weekend to clarify organizational details. The World Championship for radio amateurs starts in just 35 days!
