2 Meter, 80 Meter Foxes Deployed in Westford, May 5, 2018

Hi Everybody,

I have deployed both the 2m fox and the new 80m fox!

Both are located within a 1 mile radius of my home.  My info is good on  QRZ.com.

There is no logbook.  However, cell phone photos are accepted as “proof”  that you found the fox(es).  🙂

Have a lot of fun, and 73,

    Hi everybody,

    A few people have reported that they found both the 2m and 80m foxes. Everybody reported that they had fun during the search.

    The fox transmitters are both located in the Cider Mill Pond conservation area in Westford.

    At this point, the 2m fox is probably not working, since its 9V battery is probably depleted.

    I’m currently hearing a lot of weirdness on the 80m band, so I’m not sure if the 80m fox is still running.

    I will retrieve both foxes later today, perhaps around 4-5 PM, weather and mosquitoes permitting.
