For those who are going, the most important part of the schedule are the group events. It is the one time that you get so many contesters from around the world in one place.

For those at home, be sure to work as many of the WRTC stations in the contest as possible. We are all spending a lot of time and energy to make a great event, but it would not work without your participation.
what about next WRTC ? Reply

WRTC-2000 is over now.
What about the next WRTC. I need info about his date, place and criterions for choice of participants. All info related to next WRTC is also welcome.

Tnx, Sasho, LZ1FW
