The KD1D Fox transmitter is OTA as of 1600 EDT on Friday Aug 30.
Since it’s a holiday weekend, I made it fairly easy to find in the Nutting Road area [of Westford]. Very little bushwhacking should be required.
I am working on some new enclosures that allow the use of a bigger battery, but for now, I expect it to run for at least 2 days.
Happy Hunting and a great Labor Day Weekend to all!

I retrieved the KD1D Fox around noon today. As expected, it was off the air. The 12 volt alkaline battery pack had dropped to about 5.6 V.
Congratulations to Bob W1FDR who found it on Saturday at 1:08 pm
and to George, K1IG who found it on Sunday around 10:55 AM (in 18 minutes, no less!)
While I haven’t seen it announced yet, I heard the KB1OIQ 2-meter fox this morning.
