cool gear shows your support and makes you a part of the WRTC2014 team.
Every purchase helps provide funding for acquisition of equipment and
hosting of the 59 competing teams. WRTC shirts and hats make great prizes
for radio club meetings too!"

HamventionR May 18-20. WRTC2014 will be in booth 354 in the Silver Arena.
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).
