How Do I apply to be competitor in the WRTC2002 in Finland?
If you are outside of United States, you should simply contact the national IARU society and/or the leading contesting groups and ask them whether you can apply as your country representative for the WRTC2002. This assumes that you have some good scores made over the past 2-3 years and that you or you together with your selected teammate would be equally proficient in handling SSB and CW operating effectively in contest environment. If you would lack a local contact – you may wish to contact WRTC2002 organizers directly as instructed at WRTC2002 web.
How about the U.S team selection?
While the core U.S representation will be worked out in cooperation with the leading U.S contest clubs, two “U.S wild card” slots are reserved for two more U.S teams that may not get proposed through this mainstream U.S club pre-nomination. Here, in case of the U.S wild card teams, you will be proposing a team of two-men while the basic U.S allocation would go in two steps. Selection of a U.S captains, following the captain’s selection of their teammates.
