The 8th IARU Region 3 ARDF Championships concluded on Tuesday evening, 27 September, with a banquet and award ceremony in the Baringhup Community Hall. Baringhup is about 10 kilometres from Maldon, where the Championships had been centred and the Community Hall has been described as an honest, down-to-earth tin shed, which started life as an Australian air force building.

Teams from Australia, USA, China, Japan, Malaysia and Korea had competed in the Championships with one competitor from Kazakhstan. Many medals were presented at the banquet by Michael Owen VK3KI IARU Region 3 Chairman and very many photographs of the presentations were taken. IARU Region 3 ARDF Committee Chairman, Yoshio Arisaka JA1HQG said that the 8th ARDF Championships had been a wonderful success and congratulated everyone involved in conducting them.

The event was hosted by the Wireless Institute of Australia and the organisation was undertaken by a committee from the Victorian ARDF Group, under the leadership of Jack Bramham VK3WWW, WIA ARDF Coordinator, whose great contribution was particularly recognised.
