The RSGB Amateur Radio Direction Finding Team has arrived back from the 2014 World Championships which were held in Kazakhstan. They brought with them a record haul of four medals, all of them silver.

The most notable achievement was the silver medal won by team manager David Williams M3WDD in the 2 metre Classic race. His M50 category (that is men aged between 50 and 59) is one of the most competitive categories and the performances at the top are often breathtakingly good. This is the first time an RSGB member has ‘broken through’ into the top flight of one of these age categories. The remaining medals came in the slightly less competitive M70 category. The major team competition here came from the Swedes and from the Germans. In the 2m Classic race we were beaten by the Swedes and in the 80m Classic race it was the Germans who were on the top of the podium. Despite this Robert Vickers G3ORI snatched a silver medal in the 2m Classic race and thereby underpinned the team’s silver medal won in that race.
