Fox Hunt, Colchester CT, April 8, 2023

Mark Noe, KE1IU, writes on the ctfoxhunter list:

A foxhunt is a high-tech game of hide and seek where you use direction finding equipment to locate hidden transmitters. SECARS will be hosting a foxhunt on Saturday, April 8 at noon – at Zagray Farm – 544 Amston Rd., Colchester, CT. This foxhunt will have several transmitters hidden around the field at varying levels of difficulty to enable beginners and challenge experienced foxhunters. This will be an on-foot foxhunt. For those who have never tried foxhunting before, there will be experienced hunters to help you. You do not need to bring gear if you do not have it – we have extra equipment that we can loan you and show you how to use. Transmitters will be hidden in accessible areas – minimal to no bushwhacking will be required. Transmitter frequencies and other parameters are listed below.

If you have any questions, please contact Mark KE1IU at
