The amateur radio direction-finding (ARDF) championship for Region 3 of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) – which includes Oceania and most of Asia – was abruptly cancelled in late June.
The "foxhunting" event had been scheduled to
be held in China in September, but Newsline reports that the sponsoring
club cancelled it due to "unforeseen difficulties." It was reported
that the event lost the necessary support of the local government and that
efforts to develop an alternate plan were not successful.
On this side of the
Pacific, the IARU Region 2 and USA foxhunting championship competitions are being
held jointly in North Carolina in early August.
