Fox Hunt Information

HAMARS is hosting our first Foxhunt on Saturday, October 14. Here's some information on how it'll work. Everyone is welcome to participate.

​Be sure to check back here for updates

Date: October 14, 2023

Starting time: 10:00 AM

Ending time: 2:00 PM or until fox is located

Fox: Jerry, N4KJ

Fox's roaming area: Madison County NC (Click on pdf map below)

Fox's transmit frequency: 146.565 MHz

Coordination repeater: Viking Mtn 145.150 MHz 118.8 Hz tone

Fox's cell phone number day of hunt: 828 206-6688

​Fox will transmit a recorded message for one minute every five minutes until located. Fox will keep hunters updated as necessary on the Viking Mtn repeater. Please call the fox (KE4MH) on the Viking Mountain repeater to check in before the hunt begins. If you have no transmitter, give the fox a call at 828 206-6688.

​Fox will be located in a publicly accessible area and may or may not be in a vehicle.

​Since this will be the first HAMARS-sponsored fox hunt event, it may prove relatively easy to find the fox this time, However, more challenging hunts are planned in the future. But, be forewarned- signal reflections off area mountains can deceive the most seasoned of hunters!

The first hunter to touch the fox’s transmitting antenna will win a $25.00 gift certificate to DX Engineering.

​Please know that this is our first fox hunt so please be tolerant of any last-minute changes.
