Written by DL8OBF   

On Sunday, October 5, 2014 the World Radio Team Championship (WRTC) Sanctioning Committee selected Germany 

as the host nation for the WRTC 2018. This nomination followed an initative of DARC, BCC and RRDXA,

initiated during the Ham Radio fair Friedrichshafen at the end of June 2014. 

A small team, headed by Christian Janssen, DL1MGB, was set up in order to explore the option to hold this event in Germany.

Since 1990, WRTC has been held regularly in different locations. For one
week,it brings together some 60 teams from all over the world, who then
compete in the IARU HF Team Championship under field day conditions. The last
WRTC was held in New England/USA. Only a few weeks ago, it ended with
a bronze medal for Germany.

During the next weeks, the team will launch an official organisation to
finance and conduct WRTC2018 in Germany. The team is recruiting volunteers,
in particular in the fields public relations, location management, accomodation and
social events.

Three geographical regions within Germany are currently under evaluation
and one of them will be selected as the venue for WRTC 2018: the area near
Muenster/Westfalen, the area Maerkisches Oderland east of Berlin and the
area around Jessen/Wittenberg.

A web site has been set up to provide further details:
http://www.wrtc2018.de.

Additionally, a WRTC2018 mailing list for potential participants was
established.
