WRTC-2014 Receives ARRL Colvin Grant Award

03/31/2014

World Radiosport Team Championship 2014 (WRTC-2014) has announced that it is the recipient of what it called “a significant financial contribution” in the form of an ARRL Colvin Award grant. WRTC-2014 will take place July 8-14 in New England. The Colvin Award is funded by an endowment established by the late Lloyd D. Colvin, W6KG, and administered by the ARRL. Colvin Award grants are conferred in support of Amateur Radio projects that promote international goodwill in the field of DX.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award," said WRTC-2014 Chair Doug Grant, K1DG. “More than just a radio competition, the WRTC is a place where competitors from around the world can create or renew lasting friendships.”

In the July event 59 teams of top Amateur Radio contest operators from more than 40 countries will compete from equivalent stations for top honors in the event, which typically takes place every 4 years. Eligibility to participate in WRTC-2014 was based on qualifying scores posted in major contests between 2010 and 2014. A contingent of referees and judges, all well-known contesters in their own right, will oversee the competition and confirm the results.

 

 

Recent Colvin Award grant recipients include the 2013 K9W Wake Atoll and T33A Banaba Island DXpeditions and the 2014 FT5ZM Amsterdam Island operation.
