Come one, come all for what is hoped to be the first of many pre-meeting hunts.

Please do come out, even if you do not have a directional antenna. There are ways to hunt and have fun with just a rubber duck.

We will be hunting two Foxes this time. If you bring a radio, please have it programmed to the following frequencies:

WC5C/MOE will be on 146.565 MHZ

WC5C/MOI will be on 146.585 MHZ

Talk around will be on the 147.16 (PL 110.9) repeater.

We will have a brief overview of the concept and what you will be hunting for.  Then, we start hunting.

Scoring will be simple tear off tags.  Score will be for bragging rights 🙂

Please come out and join the fun.  No amateur license required.
