WRTC 2018 e.V., host of the 2018 World Radiosport Team Championship competition, is pleased to announce that the antennas to be used for the competition will be supplied by Spiderbeam. Spiderbeam was selected after a thorough technical evaluation and competitive bidding process among multiple antenna suppliers.

We are happy to receive a 1000 Euro donation by the German DX Foundation (GDXF) today. The GDXF is well known to the DX community for its continuous support of DXpeditions. GDXF president Franz Langer, DJ9ZB, underlined the strong connection between contesting and DXing. The donation has been handed over by Henning Folger, DL6DH to the WRTC president during the annual Bavarian Contest Club meeting. Henning, as a representative of the GDXF board of directors, said: "The GDXF is happy to see such a major event in Germany." We want to express our sincere thanks for the donation as a symbol of ham-spirit.

On January 6th, 2016 the WARC-Organizing-Committee met at Wittenberg with a comprehensive agenda and especially the following items

  • evaluated the offers from antenna manufacturers, which we received as a response on our request for quotation,
  • planning of a WRTC-test-weekend on July 9th/10th,
  • preparing WRTC-presentations at ham fairs in Dayton and Friedrichshafen
  • discussion of the WRTC-rules
  • discussion of the IT-concept

We received a big donation by the Contest Club Ontario (CCO) today. CCO is well known for active contesters who always support us (in central Europe) with loud signals, the VE and Zone 4 multiplier - also on the low bands. The CCO is lead by John, VE3EJ. He is the president of CCO and also famous for the gold medal of WRTC 2006 in Brazil. John wrote to WRTC 2018: "Please accept this donation from the members of Contest Club Ontario towards the costs of holding WRTC 2018. We wish you good fortune in your effort to host WRTC 2018." Of course we accept the donation and we will do our very best. Many thanks to this highly motivating support!

October 16th, 2015 is a special date in the preparations for the WRTC (World Radiosport Team Championship). Exactly 1000 days are left before the opening of the WRTC on July 11th, 2018. It was almost one year ago that Germany was awarded to host the WRTC by the WRTC Sanctioning Committee (WRTC SC). That is why we want to look back at first results and to look forward towards the future.
