Amateur Radio Direction Finding in Victoria

17 Feb

A large audience of over 30 club members and friends welcomed Joe Young VE7BFK as the guest presenter at the Feb. 16, 2016 WARA general meeting. Joe talked about the “Sport” of Amateur Radio Direction Finding. He covered concepts, technology and equipment of ARDF along with excellent descriptions of local and international activities such as the Friendship Games. He spent time describing the differences between 80 m and 2 m RDF, and was able to demonstrate how a direction finder worked. And most interesting was his well illustrated and thorough description of his group’s trip to Croatia for the World ARDF Championships. Joe invites hams to participate in this activity.
