Registration Now Open for USA ARDF Championships

Registration is now under way for the 2017 USA and International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) Region 2 championships of Amateur Radio Direction Finding (ARDF), which will take place August 3-6 near Harrison, Ohio, northwest of Cincinnati near the Indiana state line. Three optional training days are planned for Monday through Wednesday, July 31-August 2 near Harrison, just prior to the championships. If you have never experienced a full ARDF course, this is your chance to do so in a friendly environment. Your only opponent will be the clock.

Thursday, August 3, will be devoted to the sprint event, a short course with 12-second fox transmissions instead of the usual 60 seconds each. Friday morning will be foxoring, a combination of radio direction finding and classic orienteering, followed by a model event for equipment testing and a competitor briefing.

Classic 2-meter and 80-meter competitions take place Saturday and Sunday, respectively. There will be an awards banquet on Saturday evening for presentation of medals for foxoring, sprint, and 2-meter classic. Awards for 80-meter classic will be presented Sunday afternoon, immediately after the competition.
