40M Fox Hunt
Winter 2023-2024 40M Fox Hunt will begin on
Tuesday, November 7, 2023 and run through
Tuesday, April 2, 2024. There will be no Hunts
during the weeks of Thanksgiving and
Christmas. There are two hunts each Tuesday, so
20 Foxes will be needed. Each
Fox will be scheduled for two hunts, usually separated
by several weeks.
logs are expected to be posted immediately after
the hunt. IF that cannot be accomplished,
please put a note on your application.
three factors that are considered in selecting Foxes:
Skill-- the Fox must be able to work through a pile-up
and complete as many exchanges as possible during the
hunt. If you cannot send and receive at 20wpm
you will find it extremely difficult.
Equipment-- the ability to put a stable 5W
signal out through a good antenna, and a receiver that
has adequate sensitivity and selectivity, with at
least +/- 1KHz RIT or "split" capability.
3. Location-- we will strive for as wide a geographical distribution of Foxes as possible, consistent with the other requirements.
