Radio DARC upcoming special weekend broadcast
With 300kW from Wittenberg via Vienna to North America
Wittenberg. (xv) The WRTC will be covered in two special broadcasts by Radio DARC. The radio show of the German Amateur Radio Club e.V. will broadcast a program in English on Saturday, July 14 from 11.00 to 12.00 UTC using the 49m shortwave band on 6070 kHz. Especially for the many people interested in WRTC from North America, the program will also be broadcast on 13860 kHz at the same time. The six-hour time difference makes it possible for the show to serve as a "breakfast radio" WRTC News on the East Coast of North America. There is expected to be a high level of interest from North America as not only did a total of 14 teams from North America qualify but also the defending champions Daniel Craig (N6MJ) and Chris Hurlbut (KL9A) are from the USA.
