The Organizing Committee of the World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC) 2018 in Germany is opening the application process for qualified individuals that would like to serve as referees. WRTC is unique among amateur radio competitions in that it places an on-site Referee with every operating team. Application may be sent until October 31, 2017.

Often the WRTC is rightly referred to as the Olympic Games of Radio Sport. “Olympiad” originally meant the the period between the actual Olympic Games. There are now just 500 days in our “Olympiad” until the opening ceremony. A lot has already happened - but there is still a lot left to be done and time flies.

Sponsored teams are a long-standing tradition in WRTC and a substantial part of fundraising. Dedicated contesters who cannot qualify because of other serious commitments are given the chance to take part in the WRTC. As shown in WRTC 2014 Sponsored Teams do compete with qualified teams on the same level and have reached top scores.

Now the last qualification contest is over and its raw scores are online. We already have assigned three of five sponsored teams. Because we have now received several request for sponsored teams we will set the deadline for requests to the 21st February 2017 2359 UTC.

WRTC 2018 e.V., host of the 2018 World Radiosport Team Championship, announced that the official competition rules have been published at http://wrtc2018.de/index.php/en/competition.

The organizers of the WRTC 2018 are happy to announce that ICOM Inc. will support the WRTC 2018 as Platinum Sponsor. This Japanese company has been leading in the development of novel techniques for short wave and VHF/UHF equipment for several decades. The company‘s close links to contesting can be seen in the initiative of the ICOM Contest Team and the support of the Contest University. As the main sponsor ICOM America had a great share in the success of the Olympic Games for radio amateurs in the WRTC 2014 in New England.
