The Fort Wayne Radio Club will conduct a fox (hidden transmitter) hunt Aug. 7, 2022. The hunt begins at 1:30 p.m. EDT at the Corbin Park trailhead site near Bargain Lane (formerly K-Mart), 742 N. Coliseum Blvd. Fort Wayne.

Steve Nardin, W9SAN, LInda Nardin, W9LAN and their grandson, Alex, will hide and operate as the fox. They will transmit on high power on 146.430 MHz FM simplex for one minute every five minutes. Hunters will use the 146.76 Mhz repeater as an intercom.

The hunt will use a new “micro fox” that will transmit a weak signal to nearby hunters.
