FlexRadio Systems provides a new approach in radio design. With its line of top notch software defined radios (SDR) FlexRadio Systems brings new features to radio contesting. Using direct sampling the simultaneous observation of different bands through the use of spectrum scope views and intelligent audio switching is available. Hence operating is not limited by having just two ears. These features offer new opportunities which could change contesting over the next decade.

Christian Janssen, DL1MGB, president of the WRTC 2018 Organizing Committee, emphasized the importance of teaming with innovative partners: “We highly welcome the support of FlexRadio Systems because one aspect of the WRTC is the development and evaluation of new technology.”

About WRTC 2018

WRTC 2018 e.V. is the organizer of the World Radiosport Team Championship in Germany in 2018. The event will be held from the 12th to the 16th of July in 2018 in the Jessen/Wittenberg region, south of Berlin. About 60 teams will fight for the title of a World Champion supported by about 300 volunteers, who set up the antennas and infrastructure. Quite different from usual contesting, the participants must use identical equipment in the same geographical region which eliminates all variables except their personal contesting skills.

The WRTC is held every four years.Previous WRTCs were held in Seattle/USA (1990), San Francisco/USA (1996), Slovenia (2000), Finland (2002) Brazil (2006) Russia (2010) and New England/USA (2014).
