The first fox hunt (hidden transmitter hunt) of 2023 is scheduled for February 5 at 1:30 p.m. ET.
The event will begin near the Corbin Park trailhead, 742 N Coliseum Blvd in Fort Wayne, 0.7 mile north of the intersection with East Washington Blvd.
The Fort Wayne Radio Club is offering a free three-element tape-measure Yagi antenna with BNC connector to fox hunt participants.
The fox will transmit on 146.43 MHz FM. It will initially transmit on high power for one minute every five minutes. The fox will transmit on low power for approximately 2.5 minutes at time.
Participants communicate with each other on the FWRC 146.76 MHz FM repeater. The repeater might require a 141.3 Hz CTCSS tone if it remains troubled by interference.
After the hunt, participants plan to gather at a nearby restaurant to be determined.
Beginning hunters are welcome and experienced hunters are prepared to teach.
