The 2018 USA championships of Amateur Radio Direction Finding (ARDF) will take place June 13-17 near Truckee, California, which is along Interstate 80 about 100 miles northeast of Sacramento and 33 miles southwest of Reno, Nevada.  The competition sites are at about 6300 feet elevation near Donner Summit.

An optional training day will be held on Wednesday, June 13.  Thursday will be devoted to foxoring, a combination of radio direction finding and classic orienteering.  Friday morning will be the sprint event, followed by a model event for equipment testing and a competitor briefing.

Classic two-meter and 80-meter competitions will take place Saturday and Sunday, respectively.  There will be an awards banquet on Saturday evening for presentation of medals for foxoring, sprint and two-meter classic.  Awards for 80-meter classic will be given Sunday afternoon immediately after the competition, in time for those who most leave to get home.

The Event Information Page in the homingin.com Web site includes the technical details, lodging, site embargoes, tourism, weather and much more.  Information about the sport of ARDF, including equipment and techniques, can also be found in this site.  Registration will open soon.

Please pass this message along to anyone interested in on-foot hidden transmitter hunting.

Thanks and 73,
Joe Moell K0OV
