2.  WRTC 2022 (delayed by 1 year) to be held July 8th – 9th, 2023

A sub-contest for WRTC “hunters” with awards for non-WRTC competitors was just announced.
See the rules at the link below. In a first, all competing stations will be spotted automatically by the
organizers, SSB as well as CW, so it should be relatively easy to find the special stations.
Logs and all sorts of real-time information will be available on the website in almost real time.
Etiquette: no competitor is allowed to say anything that may identify themselves. It is strongly suggested
that you DO NOT greet by name or show recognition even if you recognize a voice on SSB. Doing so
robs the competitor of seconds when seconds count, and the competitors are prohibited from
acknowledging you in any fashion. Just a quick report is the best response.  Note that a referee is present
and listening at all times, as well as recordings being made for later checking. The operators will have
unique callsigns and are supposed to remain anonymous until identified on the website shortly after
the contest.
Finally, WRTC requests that you PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR LOG IMMEDIATELY to ARRL for
the IARU Championship. A link for this purpose is on the WRTC webpage.  WRTC log checking
commences immediately after the contest and the results are announced the next evening (afternoon
on East Coast USA), so your log is needed ASAP for cross-checking.  The judging committee will
have access to logs submitted through the normal ARRL process. Your log will be used for checking
the competitors’ logs. Your own log checks will be done by ARRL for the IARU Championship using
their normal process.
