This event incorporates the British Championships 2015. It will be held in the Chiltern Hills between London and Oxford over the weekend of 15/16/17 May 2015. There will be classic races using 3.5 and 144 MHz plus a Sprint race.
At the RSGB Annual General meeting in 2014, David Deane G3ZOI was given the Don Cameron Award for outstanding contributions to low power radio communication. Dave has designed most of the ARDF equipment used regularly in Great Britain with many transmitters and receivers to his credit.
The RSGB has some equipment available to Affiliated Societies and Scout/Cadet groups on loan.
The package comprises four 80m transmitters configured for 30 second transmissions in a two minute cycle. Ten PJ80 receivers are provided and these are shipped without batteries (to reduce shipping weight) or headphones (3.5mm stereo plug).
The transmitters are very low power but are audible over distances of the order of 400m. The RSGB will fund the carriage and insurance of this equipment to and back from Affiliated Societies. Damage to the equipment is the responsibility of the Society to which it is lent.
E Mail firstname.lastname@example.org to make a booking or to ask for further information.
UK sourced equipment is now available. David Deane G3ZOI is selling (on a non-commercial basis) a kit for a combined 2m receiver and a 'tape beam' antenna at a very reasonable cost. Click here for further details of all David's offerings.
Bob Titterington G3ORY has run out of the 80m receiver kits. A redesign has commenced but the new kit will not be available until later in 2015. PCBs for an 80m transmitter are available from G3ORY.
