We’ll have a live Fox Hunt on Sunday from 9:30am until 11:00am. The Fox will be hidden somewhere in Wallingford.
We’ll be using these three frequencies:
There will be a 1 watt signal continuously on 146.565 MHz. It will make a short beep every three seconds and will ID in Morse Code every minute.
The 10mW transmitter is on 147.475 MHz and will beep every three seconds and will ID in Morse Code every minute.
The 1mW transmitter is on 146.315 MHz and beeps every three seconds and ID as W1NRG in Morse Code every minute. Expect a range of only about 1/10 mile on this transmitter.
There is no central starting location. And, there will be no check-ins prior to the hunt. Hunters should be at a location of their own choosing and listening on 146.565 MHz at 9:30.
There may be a two second long test of the 146.565 transmitter at 9:25.
Other Fox Hunters can be contacted on the W1NRG repeater 147.360 with PL 162.2 Hunters with an extra radio available might do well to monitor 147.360 throughout the hunt.
