80M Fox Hunt
Winter 2022-23 80M Fox Hunt will begin on
Thursday, November 3rd, 2022, and run through
Thursday, March 31st, 2023. There will be no Hunts
during the weeks of the Thanksgiving and
Christmas holidays. There are two hunts each
Thursday, so 20 Foxes will be needed. Each Fox will be scheduled for two hunts,
usually separated by several weeks.
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.
Location-- we will strive for as wide a
geographical distribution of Foxes as possible,
consistent with the other requirements.
