The organizers of the WRTC 2018 are pleased to announce that RigExpert is supporting the Amateur Radio World Cup 2018 as a Silver Sponsor.

The antennas used at WRTC 2018 will be measured using the RigExpert Antenna Analyzer AA-35 Zoom. All antenna assembly teams will be equipped with identical antenna measuring devices. The aim is to provide the same resonant frequencies for all antennas and to clearly document the values ​​found. The AA-35 Zoom is ideal for this. The color display allows for a variety of views that indicate that RigExpert's developers are experienced radio amateurs and antenna builders. The supplied software allows the high-resolution presentation of the results, which will become part of the location documentation pack.

RigExpert was founded in 2004 by four radio amateurs. So far over 30,000 antenna analyzers and 10,000 RigExpert interfaces have been sold. With annual sales of $1.5 million, RigExpert is No. 1 in the Ukraine. Referring to the support of WRTC 2018, Kataryna Bystriakova, R&D Manager at RigExpert, emphasizes "We love WRTC from the moment of foundation! It will be a honor finally to support WRTC-2018!”. Kataryna continues, "RigExpert's founders and associates have long been associated with the WRTC. E.g. sergei Litvinov (UX1UA), one of the founders, was a referee at the WRTC 2000 ".

Christian Janssen, DL1MGB, President of the WRTC 2018 Organizing Committee, expressed his thanks for the support: "A clean antenna system is one of the key components of a WRTC station. With RigExpert's antenna analyzer we can guarantee that all measurements are equivalent. In addition, the results can be saved and printed out. "

To meet the special requirements of WRTC 2018, RigExpert will provide a special version of the AA-35 Zoom. Since each antenna team will build four sites additional memory will allow the recording of all data from the antennas of all competition sites. Chris, DL1MGB, was delighted when testing the first device "The short display of the WRTC 2018 logo is an eye-catcher. Many thanks to RigExpert for their support and the uncomplicated operation of the devices ".
