Fox Hunt Information
Ok, now that we have your attention; we're not hunting foxes, we're hunting hidden transmitters. This is great fun and you don't need to be a licensed ham to join in.
The object of the game is to use a radio receiver to find a radio transmitter hidden somewhere on public property. Most any type of receiver with an antenna will work.
Sharpen you orientation and outdoors skills. With a directional antenna, such as a yagi, you can triangulate the location of the transmitter.

The fox will be hiding somewhere in Cleveland County NC so contact the Chamber of Commerce to get a map! You can start from where you choose. The dates are as follows: Feb.20th, May 22nd, Aug. 21st, and Nov.20th.
Hope to see a lot of participation, especially from the HAMARS folks.
