Welcome to the
QRP FOX HUNT!

Home Page

"It's a fine fox chase, my boys!"
George Washington, Battle of Princeton, 1777



A QRP Fox Hunt is a series of 90 minute Amateur Radio events during which low-power (QRP) stations, or "Hounds," attempt to make contact with specific QRP stations designated as "The Fox."

 Maps of hunts can be found at www.k4oaq.com/fox. They show the location of the Hounds and Foxes, on a map for a given hunt. Some Foxes are set up such that their Pelts (QSOs) will show on the map as they are made in real time. This is a valuable real time propagation study.
