It’s been a while since there’s been a fox hunt (hidden transmitter hunt) here on the south shore. The Whitman Amateur Radio Club will be sponsoring a fox hunt on Saturday, October 6th at 10:00 AM. Paul, N1VTI will be the fox, and the area will be limited to within the town of Whitman. The smaller area will give everyone a chance to dust off their fox hunting skills, and not waste too much gas.
As we discussed at the meeting, people are encouraged to work together in teams to find the fox. Paul, N1VTI has graciously offered to host a cookout at his QTH following the hunt, which will last until noon. The hot dogs will be provided by the club.
The date was chosen so we can do a review of fox hunting at the Wednesday October 3rd meeting, where we will show the fox hunting video that was produced by K1VV several years ago. This date was also chosen to not interfere with the Deerfield, NH NEARFest, which will be held the following Friday-Saturday (Oct. 12-13).
Please help spread the word to all of those who have participated in fox hunts in the past.
