Yes, the K1MJC Fox is out first time for 2022!
I checked the weather, supposed to rain Saturday afternoon, but Sunday is supposed to be nice and decided to put it out on a Lark, perhaps Sunday maybe a bit chilly in the 50s.
The fox is in “Storer Conservation area” within the City limits of Waltham, MA.
I’ve decided to try out the “Delayed Start” feature, and set it to begin transmitting 12 hours later, so it should start transmitting or around 2 am and should be active all day Sunday. I also water-proofed it so a little rain this evening should not hurt it.
As usual, it will be retrieved before sundown Sunday.
There is no logbook with it so you could just post to the IO group if found.
The map on this page would prove useful!
NOTE: Perhaps in the near future, Eliot and I will put out tandem foxes, and the proposed location tentatively would be the “Greenough Conservation Land” in Carlisle MA.

Congratulations to the Hounds!
Thanks to all for your support, it seems a good time was had by all. The weather will be turning colder for the coming week, but soon I hope the Fox will be afoot again soon. I’m looking forward to seeing other Fox’s on the loose soon so I too can hunt them as well.
There have been a few experiences shared already, if there are any additional now that the Fox is home, and you would like to share, I at least would like to hear about them.
