US Fundraiser for the WRTC 2010 Organizing Committee

Subject: World Radiosport Team Championships - Moscow July 2010

Dear Ham Radio Friends,

I am writing to you today to ask for your financial support of the upcoming WRTC Championship Competition that is being held in Moscow, Russia this coming July 2010. As you may already know, this event is the “Olympics of Amateur Radio” and about 50 teams from all over the world will compete for Gold, Silver and Bronze in the fields near Moscow.

This time, teams will be set up in tents with generators supplying the power and special new rules will allow both operators to make contacts in a modified form of SO2R with interlocked radios - meaning only one signal at a time is permitted on the air.

Our Russian friends have laid on what sounds like a wonderful week of amateur competition for competitors and spectators alike! There will be some side-trips for visitors and, of course, WRTC week always provides wonderful opportunities for socializing and just “hanging out” with some of the very best amateur radio contesting operators in the world. This will be “the place to be this July” - no doubt about it!

Putting on an event of this magnitude is no small effort both in terms of time and monetary expense. If you are a competitor or plan to be a spectator, I ask that you please consider making a donation to this worthy effort. If you are potentially a corporate sponsor, I also ask for your support in the name of international brotherhood and radiosport competition. Contributions are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law for USA taxpayers and can be made as follows:

Please make your check payable to “NCDXF”. In the lower left corner, write “For WRTC 2010”. Kindly mail it to Mr. Rusty Epps, W6OAT, 651 Handley Trail, Emerald Hills, CA 94062 USA. For Pay-Pal or credit card donations, please use the NCDXF website ( Click on the Join/Renew button, enter your call, write in the comment box “For WRTC 2010 and follow the Pay- Pal or credit card instructions. All contributors will be prominently listed in the WRTC program literature - so please give as generously as you can….thanks!

73, Krassy K1LZ
