Thanks to all those who made to the Vic ARDF Christmas Party.
The weather turned out perfect, considering the scorcher only 1 day earlier.
The results from the two fun 2m events have been unearthed and are below. Thanks to Darian for working them out. A couple of the 2m FoxOrs had somehow ended up on low power (?), and unfortunately they were some of the more distant ones. One was in constant carrier mode, which was a bit confusing with so much other RF noise around.
2m Sprint Course (~1.5km) 4 TX (something went wrong with TX#4 on the day, but it seems to work fine now!)
Darian 22mins 4TX
Monica 39mins 4TX
2m FoxOr Course (~5km) 9 TX on different frequencies
Bryan 70mins 9TX Darian 50mins 8TX Adam 57Mins 8TX Jack 56mins 6TX Monica 53mins 4TX Henk & Di 78mins 4TX Suzanne 80mins 4TX
Ewen also presented us all with an intriguing ARDF word puzzle that was quite a challenge. No-one got all the words, with I believe the closest being Monica with 15 ARDF words. Other placings went to Mark, Bruce and Henk.
Nibblies and BBQ followed, then we viewed the Legend of Burnout Barry, featuring the well known Invermay Drive in Monbulk. Many also stayed for the feature, chosen by a popular vote of 2 Vs 1, of Jasper Jones.
