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.

September fox hides in urban lair

foxhunt cartoonSeptember’s foxhunt occurred on Sunday 10 September, again with a reduced number of hunters in the game because that Sunday was also the date of the Findlay Hamfest. So the hunters that participated consisted of the team of Linda and Steve Nardin, K9’s LAN and SAN and their grandson Alex, the team of Charles Ward, KC9MUT, Fred Gengnagle, KC9EZP and Phil Hooper, AB9IZ, and individual hunter Clarke Derbyshire, KG9FM.

Serving as the fox was Don Glick, K9LI, who situated himself in Reservoir Park (now known as Ivan Lebamoff Park) on the corner of Creighton Ave. and South Clinton St., a few blocks south of Parkview Field. Don used a 5 watt hand held to taunt the hunters who were initially situated at Cobin Memorial Field. He emplaced the microfox within a metal birdhouse on the grounds of Reservoir Park and both he and it squawked on the usual foxhunt frequency of 146.430 MHz.
