Fox Hunt!!KG7DMI invites you to join the fun at what could turn out to be the first of many hunts. Don’t get left behind! This is your chance to test your gear and find out what works. I’m already making notes on how to make the next hunt more challenging.
No special equipment needed: Your setup can be as basic as a VHF/UHF Handy Talkie with a working “S” meter.
Additional basic equipment suggestions would include a directional antenna, (Google “Tape Measure Yagi”) and paper clip of suitable diameter to fit into the antenna jack. Make sure you have the proper adapter to connect your antenna to your radio.
The hunt will include 2 VHF beacons contained in a two square mile area. (Frequency given at introduction.)
