W1HFN Fox Box QRV in Chelmsford, May 9, 2018

Barry Fox, W1HFN writes on the PART of Westford mailing list:

The W1HFN fox box will be deployed at the Lime Quarry on Rte 110 [in Chelmsford] today [Wednesday, May 9, 2018].  Frequency is 146.565.  There is a 20 second voice message / ID every 3 minutes and a log to sign.  The unit is quite small–about the size of a deck of cards.

I will leave it out for a week, at that duty cycle batteries should last.

Good luck to all.

    Had three successful finders for my foxbox; George-K1IG, Bob-W1FDR and John-KB1MGI.

    Several suggestions were made regarding the timing cycle, so I have modified it to only 1 minute between transmissions. That should make it easier and less frustrating.

    Watch this space for the next deployment.
