August 21, 2012


WRTC2014, Inc., host of the 2014 World Radiosport Team Championship competition is pleased to announce that Times Microwave Systems, a leading manufacturer of high quality coaxial cable, custom coaxial cables and high performance cable assemblies for military and commercial applications, is providing all the coaxial cables required for the WRTC2014 event at no charge.

Each WRTC station requires three coax cables. Times LMR®-400 cable will be used for the low-loss feedline to the Cycle 24 model TX38 tribander. LMR®-240 cable will be used for the 80 meter and 40 meter dipoles.

According to Mark Pride, K1RX, leader of the WRTC2014 station committee, “It is mind boggling to realize that the 59 WRTC stations will need almost 6 miles of coax cable. The support of Times Microwave is a tremendous help in our efforts to equip each station with first-rate materials and stay within our budget.”

Robert Perelman, Director, Commercial Sales and Marketing at Times Microwave Systems, headquartered in Wallingford, CT, explained the decision to be involved with WRTC2014, “This is a great opportunity to demonstrate the quality and value of our products to the amateur radio community in such a prestigious event.”

“We are very pleased to have the support of a New England company for this critical station component,” said WRTC Chairman, Doug Grant, K1DG. “It is a great example of companies in the local community coming together to help make WRTC2014 successful.”

About WRTC2014

The World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC) is held every four years and consists of approximately 50 two-person teams of amateur radio operators from around the world 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. Previous WRTCs have been held in Seattle(1990), San Francisco(1996), Slovenia(2000), Finland(2002), Brazil(2006), and Russia(2010).
