WRTC-2014 — You Can’t Play If You Don’t Submit an Application

09/11/2013

World Radiosport Team Championship 2014 (WRTC-2014) organizers remind prospective competitors that all team leader applications are due by Friday, September 13. So far, more than 100 applications have been received for the international competition set for July 8-14, 2014, in New England.

Not everyone who qualifies will submit an application to compete in WRTC-2014, so if a top qualifier does not apply, the next eligible qualifier to apply will earn the spot. Two “wild card” slots will be filled from the remaining applications. You must submit an application to be considered!

A new WRTC-2014 Rules FAQ Page has been posted to help answer competitors’ questions about how things are supposed to work.

The World Radiosport Team Championship is held every 4 years and consists of approximately 50 two-person teams of Amateur Radio operators competing in a test of operating skill. Unlike most on-the-air competitions, all stations are required to use identical antennas and operate from the same geographic region, essentially eliminating all variables except operating ability. WRTC-2014 will include 59 competing teams from 29 qualifying regions around the world. — Thanks to The ARRL Contest Update; WRTC 2014
