U.S. ARDF Championships to be Held in California This June
Truckee, California, will be the site of this year's USA Amateur Radio Direction Finding (ARDF) Championships, where "foxhunters" will compete for bragging rights and invitations to represent the U.S. at upcoming international competitions. The ARRL Letter reports that the competition sites, near Donner Summit at an elevation of roughly 6300 feet, have never been used for ARDF competitions in the past. The event will be held from June 13-17, starting with an optional training day, followed by a day of "foxoring" competitions that combine foxhunting with orienteering, and then two days of international-rules competitions on 80 and 2 meters.
