KC1DKY Fox Deployed, Billerica, December 14, 2018

Nick Mello, KC1DKY writes on the fox-hunting list on December 14, 2018 at 1:37 PM:

The KC1DKY fox is hiding in Billerica on conservation land.  Fox is on 146.565 MHz.  Send a DTMF of 1 to activate the fox.  If the fox does not seem to be responding, send a couple DTMF # and then a 1 to possibly whack it back into shape.  The fox will signal for 30 seconds and be silent for 15 sec, and repeat for 15 minutes.  The fox is located around a third of a mile from the trail head and about 20 ft or so in from the trail.  Don’t forget to sign the log book in the plastic bag next to the fox.  I recommend some boots, as there are a few mucky spots.  And please, as it will be the topic of my daughter’s Girl Scout project, try to avoid stepping on the princess pines, which are very short plants, 2 to 3 inches tall, which look more like fern frons than pine trees. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lycopodium_obscurum

While not endangered like lady slipper flowers, they are protected…and they are found all along this particular trail.
