Description:

I am planning a Fox Hunt at Phil Hardberger Park on Saturday, 30 April0900 - 1200.  I will be hiding the MicroFox (15mw), and it 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 start 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.
 
 
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. 

I will be monitoring the AA5RO repeater 147.38 Pl 162.2 for talk-in and hints if needed.  Tips will be provided after 1100.
 
If you have any other questions, please let me know at n9eod@....
 
Thank you,

Question can we do this one from our car?  Thinking of using a non hand held radio in car.

Lloyd,

It won’t be much of a car based fox hunt. The closest you would be able to get is the perimeter of the park and that already given.

This fox hunt requires you to do some walking to com

Lloyd,

Sorry I hit send accidentally. 

It won’t be much of a car based fox hunt. The closest you would be able to get is the perimeter of the park and that already given.

This fox hunt requires you to do some walking to complete it. It’s not a lot of walking though.

In the future there will be hunts where the search area is much larger and a car can be used to hunt from.
