Ok, looks like we have at least 3 brave adventurers, so I’ll confirm for Sat Jan 9th, at 1 pm. Hopefully, more will come! We’ll meet in Pelahatchie Shore Park (map below), and I’ll have the fox placed within 3 miles of the start location. We’ll be observing the usual COVID-19 social distancing protocols, so please forgive my rudeness as I’ll be masked, staying 6 feet away, not be shaking anyone’s hands, and just generally being germophobic.
You will receive the fox frequency when we officially start.
PRIZES!!! We have 3 ARRL books that the first TWO winners can choose from.
Antenna book (24th ed.)
Storm Spotting (2nd ed.)
For those of you who are new to fox hunting, here’s a recorded presentation on Amateur Radio Direction Finding (ARDF) at the ARRL learning network.
If you are interested in making your own DF antenna, you can find plans and instructions for the venerable tape measure yagi at the following links.
Highly recommend you also make yourselves one of the following attenuators.
