Winter 2023-2024
80M Fox Hunt

The Winter 2023-24 80M Fox Hunt will begin on Thursday, November 9, 2023, and run through Thursday, April4, 2024.  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.
Foxes may choose to participate in the live logging maps, thus coordination with K4OAQ, Fritz -  [email protected] 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.


Please complete the following:






Can you send and copy Morse comfortably at 20WPM or more? YES  NO

Your primary transceiver must be capable of 5W  output and should have "split" capability  in the form of wide range RIT, XIT, or dual VFOs.
