Cal Poly Radio Orienteering & Antenna Building Events
Every year the Cal Poly Amateur Radio Club hosts one or more radio orienteering and antenna building event. These events are fun opportunities to practice radio-orienteering, build antennas, and socialize with club members and other local HAMs.
Cal Poly Radio Orienteering
Radio Orienteering, otherwise known as Amateur Radio Direction Finding (or Transmitter Hunting), is an Amateur Radio racing sport combining radio direction finding and map & compass orienteering. During a T-Hunt, participants use Yagi Antennas and radios to identify and locate transmitters hidden throughout campus.
Marvin Johnston, KE5HTS, typically runs a clinic before Cal Poly ARDF events for building his kits for tape measure yagi antennas usable in the event. Information on the tape measure yagi kit can be found on his website.
