MMRA Fox Box On the Air in Hudson-Stow, MA, Vicinity, April 29-May 2, 2022

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.

Happy hunting,
Bob Evans, N1BE
