The [Greater Bridgeport Amateur Radio Club] will hold a “Turkey” Fox Hunt on the 14th at 9 am. All members and non-members are invited to attend. The purpose of the fox hunt is to track down a hidden transmitter and find some information, then relay that information according to the instructions on a sign where the fox is located.
This month there will be two hidden transmitters – one to get you in the neighborhood which will be 5W on a 5/8th wave antenna. The other will be 1 watt on a stubby.
DO NOT CONGREGATE. Please wear a mask and socially distance yourself by staying at least 6 feet away from others.
The first person to locate the fox will be awarded 5 points for overall effort. All other participants will receive 3 points for locating the fox and 1 point for participating. Points will be tallied for the year, and at the end of the year prizes will be awarded to the top 3 hunters.
