Alan Hicks, KD1D, writes on the NEMass Fox Hunters List at 3:36 PM on September 25, 2020:
The Fox attempted to go out last week, but was seized by a fever* and went home.
Newly energized, the Fox is on the air as of 1445 EDT on Friday September 25, 2020. I expect to bring him home again on Monday morning 9/28.
– The Fox’s new den is on Westford Conservation Trust Land. (Check them out – they have great maps!)
– The initials of the site remind me of what broke Ralphie’s glasses in “A Christmas Story.”
– One of the parking areas bears the surname of the lead guitarist for a band whose first name is the same as a “luxury” model Cadillac (1976-1996) and whose last name is a computer famous for not being a PC.
– The same parking area also bears the name of a famous residence in the UK and the trail is located between two local residences, numbered 15 and 17.
– An alternate parking area is at 180° + the part of the candle that you light (and from which light emanates) + a symmetrical round 2 dimensional shape.
– You should be able to hear the signal from Rt. 225
Send me a private email to email@example.com for additional hints.
Happy hunting and 73 de KD1D
*(The fever was caused by the point of the security eye screw puncturing the insulation on the power cord from the battery to the SqwalkBox module. Considerable magic smoke was emitted from the power circuit, but the transmitter survived. The screw now has a blunt end and the power cord has a 1/2 amp fuse.)
