3rd August – ADRF 80m introduction with Bob Titterington G3ORY
Bob Titterington, G3ORY, the UK’s ARDF (Amateur Radio Direction Finding) Guru came across from Leicestershire to Telford club on Wednesday 3rd August. After a quick demo of a simple Chinese 80m DC receiver, some 14 teams invaded Little Wenlock Village Field at 1 minute intervals, clutching the borrowed equipment, in order to pin down each of 5 TXs, previously ‘planted by Bob, which transmitted in sequence. All teams found all five TXs, in times ranging from 36min 44secs to 16min 15secs. The top 3 teams were Joe 2E0EVB with Gary M0GWP (16:15), Martin 2E0TRO (18:00) and Paul G6AQA with Heather M0HMO (19:17). Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, and the novel use of 80m (3.6MHz) by tdars members, was particularly commented upon – for its accurate null bearings and ‘one box’ kit. Especial thanks to Bob G3ORY for coming this far to lead the event, and to the many visitors from Stafford radio club, who made the cross-border trek to TDARS.
