Attention all Fox Hunters! Please plan on joining the Fort Wayne Radio Club Sunday, June 7 at 1:30 p.m. EDT for our return to the thrill of the hunt!

As usual, we will start out in the parking lot of 24/30 Surplus (formerly K-Mart), 820 N Coliseum Blvd, This a half mile north of the “cloverleaf” intersection of Coliseum Blvd and E. Washington Blvd, near the geographic center of Allen County.

The foxes for this event will be Adam and Meghan Warrix, KD9NRT & KD9ODP, who won the last hunt on their first time out. The high power fox will begin transmitting at 1:30 p.m. It will transmit for one minute every five minutes. The fox, as usual, will transmit on 146.430 MHz FM. We will use the 146.76 MHz repeater for an intercom, in case anyone needs assistance. Home stations are invited to join in and send their bearings!

Hunters are requested to bring a ‘picnic’ lunch or drink for a gathering at the end of the hunt, with proper social distancing, to spin tall tales about the hunt and anything else of interest.

“Fox” masks are optional! (you need not wear a mask while in your car)!

We hope to see you there!
