Foxoring is the only ARDF event in which the approximate transmitter locations are pre-printed on the map.  Competitors use their orienteering skills to navigate to the area of the circles, where the QRP transmitters can then be heard and tracked.  This segment of the 2018 USA Championships foxoring map shows nine of the ten transmitter circles and the starting point, which is denoted by a triangle.  Read all about the championships in Homing In for September 2018.
