A few days before the start of the amateur radio world championship, we had the opportunity to interview the mayor of Wittenberg, Jochen Kirchner.

Wittenberg will become in the next few days, the centre of organization for the amateur radio world championship and the location for especially important events such as the opening and award ceremonies. Many guests will get to know the "Lutherstadt" whether they are from Germany or abroad. What can you say about how this very special World Championship is perceived by the Wittenberg locals?

A look into the WRTC organisation office in the Luther Hotel indicates the size of the WRTC project. Around the long table sit the organisers and work from the ToDo lists. Plans are printed and materials sorted.

Direct communication in the central office provides quick solutions to many problems. The equipment there includes a multifunction printer, computer for weather observation, our own computer network and well-filled whiteboards which are used intensively.
