      USA's national ARDF championships will return to the northeast this
      year. Radio-orienteers of all skill levels will gather in Boston,
      Massachusetts for four days of intense competition on the first weekend
      of June. The events will be open to any fan of on-foot hidden
      transmitter hunting, with or without a ham license. Visiting
      competitors from outside USA are welcome.

      Classic five-transmitter competitions in the forest will take place on
      June 7-8, two meters on Saturday and 80 meters on Sunday. Prior to
      that will be optional competitions in two new events, sprints and
      foxoring, on June 5-6.

      Organizing and hosting these championships will be Vadim Afonkin
      KB1RLI, one of USA's most accomplished radio-orienteers. He will be
      assisted by members of Cambridge Sports Union. Winners of the 2014 USA
      championships will be under consideration for membership in ARDF Team
      USA, which will travel to the mountains of Kazakhstan for the 17th ARDF
      World Championships in September.

      Registration is now open, with a deadline of May 1. Go to the Boston
      ARDF Web site (www.bostonardf.org) to register online and get more
      information. For the latest updates, subscribe to a special group
