The WRTC2018 Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the Team Selection
Criteria for the WRTC 2018. A committee led by Ulf, DL5AXX, worked very hard
and had long discussions to create this new set of rules.

There will be 49 Team Leaders selected through qualifying events between
February 2015 and November 2016. As a special highlight we want to give
three Youth Teams the chance to fight the battle together with the big ones.

The feedback we received from many previous competitors ended up in less
qualifying events and total qualification time. In total there are 32
qualifying events, 30 for DL, 28 for the rest of Europe and 26 for the rest
of the world.

The total of the 12 best event scores will be used for qualifying.

Some other highlights:
* New qualifying contests are WAG and IARU R1 FD

* Reduction of Single-Op categories to SO HP and SO LP

* The weighting factors of the Multi-Op categories were reduced and the
maximum of 4 Event Scores from Multi-Ops are possible now. We decided to go
this way because we are not looking for the best 10-person MS oder 25-person
MM team, but for the best two-man team. Of course there is no special WRTC
class in the big contests and the team leader qualifies at first, so the
logical step is to emphasize the Single-Op categories.

The defending champions N6MJ and KL9A will receive the only automatic place
in WRTC2018. The Organizing Committee has reserved some wild card slots to
allow invitations of exceptional qualifiers who did not otherwise earn a
place through the qualifying process.

With the claimed scores of the first qualifying event (ARRL International DX
Contest CW 2015) we will provide qualifications standings on our website.
More information about this later.
