Initial Qualification Rules Announced for WRTC-2022

The first qualifying event for the 2022 World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC 2022) will be held this month - the ARRL International DX CW contest - and the WRTC organizing committee has launched its official website and posted the initial qualification rules.

According to the ARRL Letter, the committee is trying to make the event accessible for more teams from more places, noting that "WRTC is now for everybody," not just big guns. The selection areas will be geographically smaller to provide more chances to qualify for all contesters on all continents, and team leaders will select operating partners from the top ten applicants who did not qualify as team leaders. WRTC 2022 will be held in Bologna, Italy, the birthplace of Guglielmo Marconi. The official website (English version) is at <>.
