Fox was located at approximately 1050 hours local time.

 

First hunter to find fox: KF7BXR-Greg Bentley.

Using nothing more than the rubber duck antenna on his hand held radio and a piece of aluminum foil as a variable attenuator, Greg was the first to locate the fox.

 

Special thanks to Angie Crippen, XYL of Adam Crippen-N7ISP, Adam. Adam was unable to be available to hide the fox, so his wife, Angie did a great job of handling that task.

 

Unfortunately , no photos were taken of this event.

 

Tentative plans for the next fox hunt: Valleyford Park, Spokane County during the annual ARRL Field Day event, June 26. Stay tuned for further details.
