From: RAC Headquarters Date: January 22, 1999 Subject: ARDF Championships The Friendship Amateur Radio Society (FARS) and the Region 2 ARDF Organizing Committee will host the first IARU Region 2 ARDF Championships on 10-14 August, 1999 in Portland, Oregon, USA. ARDF involves locating several transmitters in a large wooded area, using direction finding equipment along with a map and compass. Because ARDF is not as well developed in Region 2 as it is in the other Regions, training sessions will be provided prior to the competition. The event will be held in conjunction with the 6th biennial Friendship Radiosport Games (FRG-99), in which teams from FARS affiliates in Russia, Canada, Japan, and the United States compete in amateur radio events including CW sending and receiving, HF contesting, and ARDF. Further information about FRG-99 is available on the FARS website. http://web3.pacifier.com/~fars/ The Region 2 National ARDF Coordinator for Canada is: Perry Creighton VE7WWP E-mail: ve7wwp@rac.ca 3018 Spring Bay Road phone: (250) 721-0592 Victoria, BC, Canada V8N 1Z3
