Fall 2018 Fox Hunt

! RAIN or SHINE !

We’re having our fall Fox Hunt next Saturday, October 13 at 9:00AM. Pat Welch (KD2PER) and I (K2OID) will be the hunt masters. Current plans are for a four fox hunt with all four foxes able to be heard from the starting location. The foxes may be found in any order. Each Fox will have numbered tickets. Be sure to take the highest number ticket from each. Your score will be the sum of the numbers on your tickets.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

We hope to see you on the 13th.

Announcing the XRX Radio Club Fall Fox Hunt Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018 The XRX Radio club’s annual Fall Fox Hunt (radio direction finding) is scheduled for Saturday, October 13th. The hunt will start from the Webster Recreation Center parking lot, 1350 Chiyoda Drive in Webster. Please check the club website (xarc.us/) for any last minute updates. Registration is 9:00AM with the hunt to begin at approximately 9:30AM. The planned contest run time is between 9:30 and 11:30 with lunch and awards at a local restaurant to follow.
The hunt is free (except for lunch) and open to all amateur’s regardless of club affiliation or previous experience. Most of us hunt in teams of two or three. Many teams (including the winners of the last hunt) aren’t formed until the day of the hunt. Novice hunters will be linked up with experienced hunters if they wish. If you’re new to foxhunting, all you need to get started is a radio capable of receiving 2 meters. Fox hunting is challenging and fun. We hope you can join us.
