SSB-Electronic is Bronze Sponsor of WRTC 2018
The organizers of WRTC 2018 are happy to announce that the “SSB Electronic” company has become a “Bronze Sponsor” of WRTC 2018.
According to their motto “Passion in high frequency” this German High Tech company has designed, produced and distributed components for radio amateurs and commercial customers for 30 years. They were among the first to recognize the importance of promoting the idea of “Software Defined Radio”.
Peter Schulte-Noelle of “SSB Electronic GmbH” underlines that his company has always had close links with Amateur Radio: ”We know our roots very well and do our best to introduce scientific and technical innovations into the ham world to be always a bit ahead.”
Chris, DL1MGB, welcomes their support stating: “The Organizing Committee of WRTC 2018 appreciates this support. For us it means the recognition of the WRTC as an important event in Germany. The donated SDR-transceiver “Zeus I” will help to provide the required financial means to stage the World Championships of Amateur Radio in Germany.”

Base mounted YAESU Rotator to control the WRTC Beam
As successfully implemented by many DXpeditions the WRTC beam will be rotated by a rotator mounted at the base of the tower supporting the beam. This setup has been successfully tested in July 2016 at five different locations of the designated contest area near the city of Jessen, situated to the south west of Berlin, Germany.
The rotator is mounted on a sturdy base plate. The telescoping tower is affixed to the top of the rotator by a set of clamps. The heavy duty G-1000 DXC rotor will be exclusively used for the WRTC event. It has been donated by our Prime Sponsor YAESU.
