The Story County Amateur Radio Club is hosting another Foxhunt, or hidden transmitter hunt, at 2:00 pm on Sunday, December 6th in Ames, Iowa. We request all interested hunters assemble in the parking lot west of Ames City Hall (behind the Ames Veteran’s Memorial, Grand Avenue and 5th Street) to register with the hunt leader and receive the rules briefing. Hunters may be individuals or teams and the fox will be hidden somewhere within the Ames city limits on publicly accessible property. Everyone is welcome, even if you do not have an amateur radio license (hunting is a receive-only activity). If you have never hunted before, come to the assembly area and ride along with one of the more experienced hunters. For an introduction to Foxhunting, see: http://www.qsl.net/nz0i/equipment/equipment.htm The automated fox will transmit a series of Morse code tones on 146.430 MHz FM simplex for two hours (2:10 to 4:10 pm), with assistance provided to any requesting hunter on the fox frequency in the final hour (after 3:10 pm).
