We have a 80m ARDF event on March 17 at Umstead West. There will be a Classic 80m event and a Sprint. Everyone is welcome. We will have a beginner class at 12:30. We will rent receivers for $5 at the event.

Please pre-register for this event here, and when you choose your course choose whether you need to rent a receiver. You can decide exactly which courses you want to take at the event. You can do both the classic and sprint for the same entry.

Course lengths:
Classic 80m
5 controls is 5k,
4 controls is 3.7k
3 controls is 2.9k.
Sprint 5 controls 1.7k

We Got New Equipment

We bought a set of transmitters. They can be programed together using the computer or individually with their controller (the one on the left). We also have poles to mount the antennas, and it takes about 3 minutes to set up the transmitter and antenna in the field. The transmitters can broadcast either 80m or 2m depending on which antenna is plugged in. I have been testing them and we will use them for their first event on March 17.
