We are planning to have a beginner and advanced transmitter hunt (ARDF/fox hunt) at 11 AM on Saturday and a beginner hunt at 11 AM on Sunday. The frequencies will be 146.565 MHz and 144.250 MHz. Bring your own receiver with S-meter, preferably with a yagi or loop antenna. Transmitters will be outdoors on the grounds of the Marriott.
Prizes will be awarded.
Sign up online and/or come to the FOXHUNT canopy.

I got my General license last year at Pacificon after the one day class by Paul K6FRC and Rich KN6FW. I was immediately interested when they talked about radio direction finding, aka Foxhunting. I found Radio Direction Finding - San Francisco (rdf-sf.org) and joined them for their hunts. I am new to this hobby and very excited.

My background in Transmitter Hunting goes back almost a half century. I delight in using things I already have and modifying them to do what I want them to do! On Sunday I would be happy to show you what I did that made me a contender in T-Hunts.

The transmitters we use include the byonics.com/mf MicroFox 15s which transmits about 15 milliwatts and MicroFox PicCon which transmits about 500 milliwatts. We hope this information will help those interested in putting on foxhunts for your own clubs.
