WRTC-2014 is Accepting Applications for Team Leaders

08/10/2013

World Radiosport Team Championship 2014 (WRTC-2014) is accepting applications from individuals who would like to participate in WRTC-2014 as team leaders. Prospective team leaders must use the application form on the WRTC-2014 website, and applications are due by September 13, 2013.

WRTC-2014 is a competition among two-operator teams, and 54 team leaders will be selected from the top qualifiers in 29 regions from around the world. Each team leader then selects a teammate for the competition. The team leader qualification formula considers 12 scores selected from 55 qualifying events between October 2010 and March 2013.

“With the publication of the results from the final qualifying event, we are ready to open the competitor application process,” said WRTC-2014 Chairman Doug Grant, K1DG. “It will be exciting to see who earns a place in the competition.”

Three-time WRTC gold medalist (with Jeff Steinman, N5TJ) Dan Street, K1TO, is leading the competitor selection process. “We encourage all of those with high rankings to apply, because it is possible that some of those with higher scores in your selection area may choose not to apply,” he said. “We will select two wild card team leaders from those applications that did not earn a spot as a team leader.” The 55 qualifying events included 30,814 operators who produced 141,787 scores! The qualification standings are on the WRTC-2014 website.

In addition to the regional qualifying, a youth team slot is reserved for a contest team with both members younger than age 25 before July 2014.

WRTC 2014 expects to announce the team leaders by the end of September. For more information visit the WRTC-2014 website or contact WRTC-2014 Chairman Doug Grant, K1DG.
