It’s time to release the Fox!
A recent poll indicated an overwhelming enjoyment of the on-foot hunts so we will again be setting up an IARU-Style fox hunt. An IARU-Style hunt is one in which multiple foxes are released into the woods. It can be thought of as “orienteering with radios.”
Join Huntmaster Glen, NK1N, for this event Saturday, August 6 at 9:00am ET. The starting point for this hunt is the Mercer County Park East Picnic Area, 1346 Edinburg Dutch Neck Rd, Princeton Junction, NJ 08550. (40°15’40.6″N 74°37’12.8″W or 40.261275, -74.620232)
Fox Hunting is a receive-only event. Participation does not require an amateur radio license. The only requirements are a working 2m FM receiver and an antenna. A directional antenna such as a hand-held yagi, is highly recommended. Bug spray doesn’t hurt either : ).
Participate individually or form a team. Please sign up below to receive further information and instructions. Hunts are usually done by 12:00 noon.
To register, kindly complete the form which will be routed to our event host, Glen Johnstone, NK1N.
