The 2013 Station Test for WRTC locations and stations will be happening during the IARU HF Championship the weekend of July 13-14, 2013. The WRTC organizers are planning to set up 30 stations to test readiness for the big event in 2014.
We are looking for operators willing to visit New England for the weekend and use the WRTC antenna set ups. This will provide valuable data for confirming the equality of the sites and provide log data to the competitors that will be attending next year.
What is needed? We are looking for four or five 1-4 person teams that are willing to bring radios and a desire to work the 24 hours of the contest.
We are also looking for ops willing to do part time efforts. Several of the existing teams are looking for extra help or relief operators.
Fly in or drive in. This is your chance to get a taste of the WRTC operating experience.
The stations will be located along I-495 between Pepperell, MA and Carver, MA.
If you have an interest, please contact Tom Frenaye, K1KI, immediately.
For everyone who can't make it to New England, please take a few minutes during the IARU contest and work the WRTC Test Stations.
