Official Rules

Because ARDF organizations and activity in IARU Region II are relatively new, there is no official set of rules for IARU Region II international events. Instead, the IARU Region II ARDF Working Group endorses the excellent rules developed by the IARU Region I ARDF Working Group, which are designed to be used world-wide:

Rules for Championships in Amateur Radio Direction Finding

These rules should be used as the basis for any international ARDF events held in IARU Region II. Adaptations will be allowed, as necessary, to accomodate the limitations of people and resources that still exist as ARDF activity matures in IARU Region II. Acceptable modifications might include:

  • simplified starting sequence
  • reducing the minimum course length
  • using FM transmitters on two meter courses
  • reducing the number of age/gender entry categories
  • reducing the number of Jurors, and the qualifications for being a Juror

In all cases, the basic principles of fairness and good sportsmanship must be observed. Further simplification and/or modifications may be made for national or local competitions to meet local needs.
