There is an expression in English. “Making mountains out of mole hills…”  I suggest that WRTC2018 organizers accept CT1BOH’s offer to be responsible for selecting the operating sites.

Hello Christian


Great news to see WRTC2018 gaining speed.

I am sure It will be a great event with the expected German "craftsmanship" in place.


I salute considering contesting events focused on young radio amateurs. The future is to them.


I'm also happy to see "Emsland" which indeed seems to have  has a good flat environment profile (I had a quick look using http://www.heywhatsthat.com/ tool).

But just choosing from the very begging a flat region, is not in itself, an assuring assumption as far a level playing field is concerned, because the devil is in the details.

Only having available the full list of exact QTH's before the event will ensure that the level field is indeed "level", and will comfort the operators, that competition will be a true test to skill and not a lottery to a good or bad QTH.


Keep up the good work.

WRTC2018 Work group met in Rheine

On Saturday, 22nd November the WRTC2018 working group of RRDXA and BCC met in the town of Rheine near Münster for the second meeting. Chairman Christian Janßen, DL1MGB, summarized the activities of the past months, especially our succesful application.

The main subject of the meeting was the final decision on the WRTC qualification process, which defines contest and category weights. As promised, the final rules will be published by the end of November.

Other topics of the meeting were financing, foundation of the formal WRTC 2018 organization, and marketing related topics. Lots of details have been discussed and new ideas were born. For example, we consider contesting events focused on young radio amateurs as part of the WRTC2018 project.

On Sunday, a small group explored the region east of the town of Lingen, which will be one of our candidates regions. The region called "Emsland" offers a completely flat environment, thus providing a leveled playing field. Its topography will support a fair competition.

About WRTC2018
The World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC) is held every four years and consists of 50+ two-person teams of amateur radio operators from around the world competing in a test of operating skills. Unlike most on-the-air competitions, all stations are required to use identical antennas from the same geographic region, eliminating all variables except operating ability. Previous WRTCs have been held in Seattle/USA (1990), San Francisco/USA (1996), Slovenia (2000), Finland (2002), Brazil (2006), Russia (2010), and New England/USA (2014).
