The sport of Amateur Radio Direction Finding (ARDF) or radio orienteering is just getting started in Texas. ARDF is the sport of finding radio transmitters on foot, using radio receiver, map, and compass in diverse, wooded terrain. ARDF joins orienteering skills like the proper use of topographic maps, compass skills, and locational awareness, with radio direction finding skills using hand-held portable receivers and antennas. An established sport with international rules and competitions, ARDF is now coming to Texas!

ARDF is great fun for young and old alike - an opportunity for personal challenge in the great outdoors!
