World Radiosport Team Championship 2014
July 8-14, 2014

Welcome to the home of WRTC2014!

The World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC) is held every four 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 from the same geographic region, eliminating all variables except operating ability.

WRTC2014 will include 59 competing teams from 29 qualifying regions around the world. This will be the largest and most competitive WRTC ever!

WRTC2014 Receives Colvin Award Grant

WRTC 2014, Inc., host of the 2014 World Radiosport Team Championship competition, is pleased to announce that it has received a significant financial contribution in the form of a Colvin Award Grant.

The Colvin Award is managed by ARRL and funded by an endowment established by Lloyd D. Colvin, W6KG (SK). The Colvin Award is conferred in the form of grants in support of Amateur Radio projects that promote international goodwill in the field of DX.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award,” said Doug Grant, K1DG, Chairman of WRTC2014.  “More than just a radio competition, WRTC is a place where competitors from around the world can create or renew lasting friendships.”

Fifty-nine (59) teams of top amateur radio contest operators from more than 40 countries will travel to the New England area July 10-14, 2014 to compete in WRTC2014. Participation is based on qualifying scores posted in major contests between 2010 and 2014. A group of referees and judges, themselves well known contest operators, will oversee the competition and confirm the results.
