The Netherlands amateur radio society VERON reports Suzan PD3SZN established a record for the fastest time among women in the ARDF competition at YOTA 2017 in Gilwell Park

A Google English translation says:

In the afternoon an ARDF (Amateur Radio Direction Finding) hunt was organized at the camp. The 2m and 80m band was hunted. The Dutch team was in the first place at 2m in turn. Here Suzan PD3SZN established another record for the fastest time among women. It was a challenge to find all 5 stations. Many have passed the campsite several times. Those who were not tired of the first hunt could then hunt again on the 80m band. Later that day, during the closing ceremony, Lennart PD5LKM, along with 2 other competitors, would have set the fastest time at the 80m hunt.

The VERON report also describes the construction by the Dutch YOTA team of an 18 MHz band QRP transceiver designed by Hans G0UPL.
