Past Fox Hunting Event: Field Day 2016
The most recent Fox
Hunt details from Richard
AG1B at the Whitman Club Field Day June 25th &
arrived at the Field day site at the East Bridgewater Y and set the
146.535 mhz Fox box just off a trail about 100 yards from the upper
pavilion. This would provide an opportunity for those members who have
wanted to try Fox Box hunting a low pressure location for
timers. Over the weekend I saw the following members find the Fox Box
transmitter; ROY KB1CYV, MIKE WA1MAD, JEFF N1SOM, and JIM W1GQN. Congratulations to these
Fox finders. If anyone else participated please
