Press release # 11
Dear friends in Radioland!
As you probably well know 2010 will bring to world amateur radio community another edition of Radio Sport Olympic Games - World Radio Team Championship will take place in July 2010 near Moscow, Russia.
Fifty two-men Teams representing most successful Contest Nations from all six continents will gather for 5 days event to define worldТs best radio contesters.
WRTC-2010 will provide most even playing field to participants, as Teams will operate in field style from flat area of Moscow suburb with equal propagation and noise conditions, ASL elevation, antennas and portable power. In order to assure level playing field Organizers will provide 50 Teams with tents, generators, antennas, fuel and food, accommodations, transportation and security. This brings WRTC2010 budget to significant Euro 300K level, which is difficult to handle in these difficult times.
With this in mind we invite Amateur Radio Community, not just Contesting World, to consider financial support for Amateur Radio Olympic Games. Every Euro would help to defray this big cost and arrange Games at best possible level.
DARC (Deutscher Amateur Radio Club e.V., Germany's national IARU member society) offered its help in collecting financial support for WRTC 2010 Organizing Committee for funds coming from Europe.

Please indicate your name, callsign and address with transfer. WRTC2010 Organizers will send Games memorabilia to all with Euro 50 and more donations.
European donators should make sure their bank will use the "SEPA" method for sending money, which is free. УNormalФ international money transfer cost would eat up a significant amount of your donation.
