Russian aggression against Ukraine continues, more and more countries are stepping up to help Ukraine to fight for its freedom and sovereignty, giving humanitarian and military aid. At the same time we feel that the World is kind of “getting tired” of war, and this topic is fading into the worlds news.
It’s necessary and very critical to do everything possible to keep Ukraine on the radars of the Global Community.
We believe that having a second team from Ukraine competing in the World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC) in 2023 in Italy would also serve this purpose.
This team would consist of two operators: young contester Yaroslav, UW7LL, who made it into the Top Ten at previous WRTC in Germany (2018) and WRTC veteran Yuri VE3DZ/UT4UZ (7 previous WRTC, best score is #4 at WRTC-2006).Both are the World and Continental winners of many HF Contests and eligible to participate in the WRTC according to their rank on the WRTC-2022 selection process.
We hoped for the Wild Card selection, but unfortunately it didn’t happen. Our only chance now is to be one of the “Donor Teams”, but for that we need to donate 15,000 EUROs to WRTC-2022 organizers.
If we will be able to collect necessary funds, our team will reserve one of 5 available Donor team seats. So far we were able to raise about $7,000, so we need approximately $8,000 more.
Your help would be greatly appreciated. The list of all Donors will be published here and on WRTC-2022 the website.
You may donate in different ways:
- by PayPal or Credit Card using link: https://PayPal.me/ve3dz or to firstname.lastname@example.org
- by Cheque, E-transfer, or directly to either UW7LL or VE3DZ (please contact email@example.com for details).
All donated funds eventually will be transferred to WRTC-2022 committee and will be used to support WRTC-2022.
Thank you in advance!
