The WRTC test day 2017 brought together more than 100 volunteers in the Jessen/Wittenberg region, to set up field day stations at 15 locations.

WRTC 2018 Test Session in Jessen

After the devastating storms on Thursday that had made the journey difficult for some, on Saturday morning all the teams were on site. The focus on Friday was the training of the participants, in particular the antenna teams. The training occurred at the campsite in Prettin. On Friday evening, further test participants arrived, filling the meadow with caravans and tents. Apart from the locals, there were also amateurs from Bavaria, the North and Baltic Sea coasts as well as from the far west of Germany. Not only were well-known faces from the test day in 2016 again present but also many new enthusiastic contesters between the ages of 20 and 80 years. Saturday was the main construction day.

The 15 locations were supplied with all materials using four transporters. The remote locations near Lübben and Zossen had to be patient for some time. In addition to the large items such as masts, Spiderbeams, tents, coax cable and generators there were also many tools and small parts to be transported. They were in “Box 1” and “Box 2”, which also contained such useful and important parts as the red permanent markers and the lotion used for hand washing without water. The largest part, the solid floor, was delivered directly to the sites.

In all locations, antennas and infrastructure were built without any major problems. The wind made the antenna erection somewhat more difficult - fortunately the weather was sunny and dry. Site assembly required hard, concentrated work to ensure that all parts were correctly installed – essential for the correct operation of the stations.

After many hours of construction work it was then time for radio operation, recreation and exchange of experiences. Lessons learned notes were recorded and are now included in all further planning. The atmosphere was excellent - the mixture of hard work and amateur flair conjured up enthusiasm into many faces. New friendships have emerged, many ideas were born.

On Sunday morning the stations were dismantled. There was a schedule of when the materials would be picked up so that each team could dismantle accordingly. From 11 o'clock onwards the transporters arrived in the camps. At 3 pm everything was packed up.

Excellent preparation and the Ham Spirit of all participants made the test day a total success. We can look optimistically to 2018 when we will welcome 63 teams to Germany. For this, we need further support, e.g. Donations or registrations as volunteer helpers for the World Radio Team Championships 2018.
