IARU Region 3 ARDF Championship Cancelled

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.
