Winter 2021-2022
40M Fox Hunt


The Winter 2020-2021 40M Fox Hunt will begin on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 and run through Tuesday, March 29, 2022.  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.
Foxes may choose to participate in the live logging maps.

When you log into www.k4oaq.com/fox you should see an “Admin” button at the top of the screen.

Holding your cursor over that should show several things that can be clicked, one of those being “Setup Live Mapping”.

After clicking that you should see more detail than you ever wanted to see after retiring.

Be that as it may, I, along with several other hardened FOXII, are here to help.

I currently have pgms available that allow 2 logging programs, N1MM & N3FJP’s AC Log, to do live mapping.

Kevin, W9CF, uses the linux version of TR log and has written his own program that enables him to do live logging.

If you use another logging program, just reach out & we’ll see what we can do.

Even if you don’t use a logging program, I’m open to setting up a web page that would accept log info.

Or, a simple program that runs on your PC could be setup.

I know most program of these logging s present a real challenge to people who haven’t allowed computers to take over their lives.

One of the reasons these logging programs are so difficult to setup & use is because they can do many things.

Thus, if the only thing a program does is live mapping or logging, then it can be a lot simpler.

If you’re interested in pursuing but not committing, just let me know & we can discuss offline.

Coordination with K4OAQ, Fritz, Fritz@k4oaq.com,  www.k4oaq.com/fox needs to be accomplished as soon as possible after selection.

There are three factors that are considered in selecting Foxes:

    1.  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. 

    2.  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.
