The World Radiosport Team Championship returns this summer to the United States after 18 years.
This global gathering — an Olympic-style competition between the world’s elite amateur radio contesters — is back on home soil for 2014. The event, scheduled for July 8–14, promises to light up the ionosphere above Massachusetts.
What is radiosport? It’s the competitive use of amateur radio.
The championships are part of an ongoing cycle.
Almost every weekend, amateur radio operators put their stations on the air and compete against their fellow operators in a spirit of sport, good will and technical competency. The goal of these contests is to make as many contacts with other amateur radio stations as possible.
