Bradd Davidson, KA9LCF informed our club webmaster that his repeater on 442.45 MHz, Auburn now requires a 141.3 Hz continuous tone-coded squelch system tone. The KA9LCF repeater also transmits the 141.3 Hz tone. Previously, the repeater's receiver operated on carrier squelch only and the transmitter sent a tone of 131.8 Hz.
The June foxhunt occurred as scheduled on 7 June after a little suspense regarding its actual date. The suspense occurred because, as it worked out on that date, neither the Pliett/Burke team, who were to be the Fox, nor the Nardin team, could participate in the hunt on the 7th. This meant that one of the other foxhunt teams would need to act as the Fox, and likely only two remaining teams would be available to hunt. So the alternative of moving the hunt to the following Sunday was considered.
Ultimately it was decided to carry on with the hunt on the 7th. Jason Eicholtz, KC9UOQ & Debbie Romine, KK4QXC graciously agreed to serve as the Fox in place of the Pliett/Burke team, which left the crew of Charles Ward, KC9MUT, Fred Gengnagle, KC9EZP & Robert Dean, KC9UHU, and the team of Jim & Kim Machamer, KB9's DOS & DOT as the two hunting groups for the June event.
The Foxhunting crew has decided to proceed with the June foxhunt on Sunday, 7 June, as originally planned, starting from Cobin Memorial Park at 13:30 hours. The fox will transmit on 147.855 MHz, and the fox intercom will utilize the 146.760/.160 MHz machine
