2020-03-08 ARDF Attenuator Build Session
Come assemble your ARDF Attenuator kit!
This event was a great success!
ARDF Ottawa held this build session in March 2020, just prior to the start of COVID lockdowns. Participants assembled the 3rd Planet Solar / KC9ON Fox Hunt V6 attenuator described here: https://kc9on.com/product/fox-hunt-v6-smd/ If you scroll to the bottom of that page it shows the attenuation levels for both 2m and 70cm frequencies
Build your ARDF offset attenuator kit with us!
Come join us at the uOttawa Richard L'Abbé Makerspace to assemble your 2m ARDF Offset Attenuator kit. You must bring your kit and all of your own tools and supplies (see below).
ARDF stands for Amateur Radio Direction Finding. ARDF is also known as fox hunting, transmitter hunting, and bunny hunting. Please note that none of these activities actually involve hunting or animals - a better term than hunting might be "finding". However, these alternate names are widely used.
An offset attenuator is one of the pieces of equipment used for ARDF.
What You Need To Bring!
Identify your tools with your name or callsign on masking tape. If you are missing any of these tools, you can likely borrow from one of the other participants.
