"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."



The QRP Fox Hunt Committee is delighted to announce the 2016 20M Foxtravaganza, which will take place on:  

Thursday, September 15th

During Foxtravaganza, ALL of the 2016 Summer Foxes, Alternates, and Committee members will be eligible to call "CQ FOX" on 20M at the usual time.  The exchange is the usual, and bragging logs may be posted, but there will be no "official" results.  No rules, just fun.  How many Foxes can  you work when there are 15 or so available??   May the Fox be ever in your favor....
