ARDF Championships

The 17th USA and 9th IARU Region II ARDF Championships, being held in the greater Cincinnati area from July 31st to August 6th.

The first three days will consist of local training events, to be held on similar terrain as the competitions, using the same transmitters. Maps will be provided, as well as directions, but transportation to the sites is left to the competitor

Thursday will be the Sprint competition, and Friday will be the FoxOR competition. Friday evening will be the main event briefing and social event.

Saturday will be the main 2 meter competition, followed by the awards banquet. Sunday will be the 80 meter competition, followed by an on-site awards ceremony.

Registration is still open, until June 30th. Anyone of any skill level is encouraged to compete—you do not even need to be a ham. There will be lots of practice events between now and then.
