WRTC 2018 Si gioca...!!!

Report by I0ZUT   Editing by IK0UTM   Mancano pochi giorni all'inizio del CONTEST IARU, che si svolgerà sabato 14 e domenica 15 luglio 2018. E' un evento durante il quale si confronteranno 65 team, composti da 2 operatori ciascuno, per contendersi i vari titoli in palio di CAMPIONI DEL MONDO dei radioamatori contesters. La nazione che quest'anno ospiterà l'evento, è la Germania (visitate il sito internet del WRTC 2018 per tutti gli ultimi aggiornamenti sulla competizione..). Ci sono voluti 3 anni di duro lavoro per organizzare questo evento, che ha visto un notevole impegno di energie per organizzare la logistica, stilare i regolamenti e soprattutto selezionare i partecipanti...

Gli equipaggi che rappresenteranno la nostra zona geografica EU4 (composta da Italia, Spagna, Portogallo, Sardegna, Malta ed altri country minori...), sono 3, ma i partecipanti alle selezioni per la zona EU4 sono stati 2407, di cui 1322 italiani, 768 spagnoli, 135 portoghesi, 51 sardi, ed altri piccoli numeri per gli altri country minori.

I 3 team leader vincitori delle selezioni sono: lo spagnolo EC2DX, che ha scelto come compagno di avventura EA5KA, l'italiano IZ3EYZ che sarà in team con IK4VET e lo spagnolo EA2OT che sarà affiancato da EA8RM dalle Canarie. La classifica finale ha risentito, come ogni anno, di squalifiche eccellenti, anche di contesters che hanno superato i 10.000 punti, ma che sono incappati nella censura di un regolamento veramente selettivo. Il maggior numero di squalifiche riguarda gli europei, mentre negli USA se ne contano solo una quindicina ed in Giappone, su 3.000 radioamatori, nessuna.

La classifica ufficiale e definitiva, dei partecipanti della nostra sezione è la seguente:

I0ZUT punti 1248 contest 12  I0UZF punti 1056 contest 8 

IK0YUT punti 417 contest 9  IZ0DXD punti 348 contest 2  

IW0SAF punti 192 contest 8  IK0XBX punti 157 contest 12

IK0AZG punti 127 contest 1  IK0FUX punti 71 contest 5  

IK0PUL punti 21  contest 2 IZ0FUW punti 12 contest 3  

IK0UTM punti 7  contest 4  IW0RTW punti 3 contest 2

IZ0GUS punti 3  contest 2  IK0VSY punti 1 contest 3  

IQ0PG punti 1 contest 1

...anche se con piccoli numeri (...rispetto ai big gun del contest...)... CI SIAMO ANCHE NOI...!!!

  • The Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network (SATERN) launched a new SATERN International SSB Net on June 2 on 14.325 MHz. Net sessions will take place Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 11 AM Central Daylight Time, in cooperation with the Hurricane Watch Net (HWN), which has used 14.325 MHz for many years during its own activations. Just down the band, another net sporting the same SATERN ...

  • WSJT-X version 2.4.0 now is available in general release. According to co-developer Joe Taylor, K1JT, WSJT-X version 2.4.0 includes a new digital mode, Q65. This protocol is designed for two-way contacts over especially difficult propagation paths, including ionospheric scatter, troposcatter, rain scatter, TEP, EME, and other types of fast-fading signals.“On paths with Doppler spread more than ...

  • Antennas/MicrowaveUtility-Driven Tradeoff Analysis, if you want to geto on the microwave bands , you will have to choose the proper antenna for your operating conditions. How to decide is not always easy, and you may also decide to build your own antenna.

  • Antennas/6M/6 meter Yagi AntennasSix meters is a great band for home built Yagis. The elements are reasonably small, but not so small that building tolerances are critical. With careful construction and detailed instructions, it is certainly feasible to build no-tune Yagis up to 432 MHz.
