I want to thank everyone who attended the April Fox Hunt at McAllister Park. We had seven people out hunting that found the Fox. Three were first-time hunters.
David NB5K and his wife were the first to find the Fox, full results posted on the leader boards.
Sunday, 16 April, 0900 – 1200 at McAllister Park
Here are the details for the April Fox Hunt.
We will have the next Fox Hunt at McAllister Park on Sunday, 16 April, 0900 – 1200. Hud, W5ZBR, will be hiding the MicroFox (15mw) again this month. The Fox will be transmitting once a minute on 146.565Mhz.
Hunter’s starting point is any parking lot for the park. No need to wait for the group. As soon as 0900 hits, you can begin hunting. If you can’t be there at 0900, that’s ok. The hunt will continue after the first person finds it. The Fox will still be transmitting and hidden till 1200.
Please consider bringing non-hams out with you—especially kids who really seem to enjoy this activity. Fox Hunting is an excellent event for newcomers to radio as it doesn’t require a transmitter to find the Fox.
Park maps can be found at:
Those that find the Fox will need to follow the instructions on the card with the Fox to get credit.
The first person to find it will get the option to hide the Fox next month.
Hud will monitor the AA5RO repeater 147.38 Pl 162.2 for talk-in and hints if needed. Tips will be provided after 1100 if requested. He will also be monitoring 147.435 if you can’t reach the repeater.
