Plan to participate in 2017's foxhunts!

Fort Wayne Radio Club members test their radio direction-finding skills by participating in a monthly "foxhunt" hidden transmitter hunt

It’s time for YOU to start planning for the upcoming foxhunting season. Foxhunts will occur on Sundays in the months February through November. We knock off for December and January. The dates established for 2017 are as follows:

  • 5 February,
  • 5 March,
  • 2 April,
  • 7 May,
  • 4 June,
  • 9 July,
  • 6 August,
  • 10 September,
  • 1 October, and,
  • 5 November

A foxhunt in any particular month can be rescheduled once within that month (due to weather, civil riots, Godzilla attacks or other unforeseen events). If the rescheduled hunt subsequently cannot be executed for whatever reason, then there will be no hunt that month.
