The RSGB ARDF World Championships team flew out to Serbia on Monday 10
September. All nine of the UK competitors are self funded.
UK ARDF events using the IARU rules have been run by the RSGB since
2002. In contrast, most eastern European nations have been pursuing
this radio sport for over 50 years and have a great deal of
experience. These nations dominate the results, with Russia, the
Ukraine and the Czech Republic particularly successful.
There are four days of competition and the results will be posted on
the event website each evening at www.ardf2012.org.
Wednesday 12th sees the first of the classic races with both the 3.5
and 144MHz bands in use. The inaugural World Sprint ARDF championships
take place on Thursday 13th and this format uses 3.5MHz. Friday 14th
is the second day of the classic races, with competitors using the
band they did not use two days earlier. Finally there is a Fox-Oring
race on the Saturday and this also uses the 3.5MHz band.
Watch out for the M40 and M70 team results. In the individual results,
Andrew G4KWQ (M40) and David M3WDD (M50) are our best prospects and
there is a chance that the RSGB might get someone on the podium for
the first time.
