(wittenberg, 7th July 2016) During the second weekend of July, exactly two years before the ham radio Olympics in Germany, the WRTC team meets for a first test session in the Jessen/Wittenberg area. We will set up the selected antennas at five sites and test this configuration in a real contest.

The test session addresses several goals. The first is to evaluate the antenna system and the setup procedure with different teams to detect optimization potentials. Furthermore, planning and logistics will be evaluated.

Additionally, we focus on public relations bringing the WRTC spirit to the residents of the region and to regional newspapers and TV stations. Moreover, we check the radio characteristics of the different sites using the world wide CW skimmer network. Beside this, five teams will take part in the IARU HF Championship contest with the goal to find the best team in an internal competition.

The planned callsigns for this radio activity are

  • for the contest: DD5M, DK2O, DR1X, DM5D and DR5L
  • for the CW skimmer test: DB2B, DK7C, DM3W, DP9A and DR3W

The general goal of the test session is to learn and to detect chances for improvement in equipment and processes.
