The [Minuteman Repeater Association] Fox Box transmits on 145.63 MHz with a 146.2 Hz PL. Transmissions repeat approx. every 165 seconds. The box has been hidden where it can be heard in the towns of Hudson and Stow MA. I plan to retrieve the Fox on Monday May 2.
MMRA uses the fox box to train for locating repeater interference. This is a longer distance hunt than ARDF. Therefore the transmitter power is higher and search area is larger. (Fox is on low power ~150mW this weekend — future hunts may use 2.3W.)
Leave a note in the “mailbox” at the left end of the box to report your success.
Email me directly if you want a hint to help locate the fox.
