"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,  "Hounds," attempt to make contact with specific QRP (5W) stations designated as "The Fox."



The QRP Fox Hunt Committee is delighted to announce the 2023-2024
80-40  Foxtravaganza, which will take place starting 0100z on April 19th (Z) or
7pm MT April 18th

During each Foxtravaganza, ALL of the 2023-24 Winter Foxes, Alternates, and Committee members will be eligible to call "CQ FOX" at the usual time, 0100z, Friday,  Thursday in the USA.   The exchange is the usual, and logs are encouraged to be posted, but there will be no "official" results.  Just fun.  How many Foxes can  you work when there are 25+  available??   May the Fox and the Prop Princess  be ever in your favor.
