WRTC2014, Inc., host of the 2014 World Radiosport Team Championship competition is pleased to announce the release of a promotional video about the upcoming event. Using footage from previous WRTC competitions, the video conveys the energy, excitement, and sporting goodwill that results when amateur radio contesters from around the world come together to compete on a level playing field.
Professionally produced by well-known DXpeditioner and videographer, James Brooks, 9V1YC, with narration provided by Erik Thompson, KA6UAI, the video is designed for all audiences. The high quality of video production and running time of just under 5 minutes makes it ideal for use at radio club meetings, for introducing amateur radio to young people, or promoting ham radio at public events.
The first showing of the video was at the July 2011 ARRL Board of Directors meeting. Response was enthusiastic with ARRL News reporting, “The Board welcomed the opportunity for the ARRL’s involvement with the World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC) in 2014, coinciding with the League’s Centennial Celebration.”
Contact email@example.com for information on how to download the video in mp4 format for use when an Internet connection is not available. The WRTC2014 committee would enjoy receiving reports of where the video has been presented and any reactions.
