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.
The Region 2 National ARDF Coordinator for Canada is:
