The XRX Amateur Radio Club held its 2016 Spring Foxhunt on Saturday May 14. Bill Kurrasch K2WEK and Paul Kurrasch KC2GTO were the huntmasters. There were a total of nine participants among 5 teams. The hunt consisted of four transmitters hidden around the Webster area, all on the 2 meter band. We started at the Webster Recreation Center. Luckily the predicted rain held off and the hunt was mostly dry. Rich Hull K2RAH proved that no special equipment is required, finding all four Foxes first, in less than 2 hours going solo, with only 2 handhelds. No yagi, no attenuator, no GPS, etc. All teams successfully located all four foxes. The final rundown:
- Rich Hull K2RAH, 40 out of 40 Points
- (Tie) Brian Donovan K2AS, Jon Dickason N2JAC 33 Points each
- Bob Karz K2OID 28 points
- Chris Wainer and Harry Ramos W2HRY 23 Points
- Ned Asam W2NED, Gregory Asam, Vince Burolla W2VAB 23 Points (Late Start)
Thanks to Bill and Paul for a fun hunt, and looking forward to our next one in the fall.
