Garry G7NVZ the fox for the event was hidden and transmitting at19:30, hearing calls from
John M0HFH and Paul M0ZMB the hunt was on. We also had John G6RAZ call in and monitor progress.
Garry initially had some technical difficulties trying to get one of his radios on frequency for when the power was stepped down. The first radio used was a Leixen VV898 mobille followed by an AnyTone AT-D878UV handheld. The antennas used at different times were a mag-mounted 2m/70cm whip, the handheld rubber duck antenna and also a dummy load on the mag-mount.
Initially John M0HFH started well and got close before getting a bit further away, Paul M0ZMB did the reverse started getting further away before making a dramatic arrival on locating the fox. John G6RAZ, who was monitoring proceedings, made a guess of where he thought the fox was located and gave an area within a mile of where the fox was. Terry M0JTX who had a prior engagement that night and inadvertently was within 1/2 a mile of where the fox was located.
The map shows approximate locations of the hounds and others after the fox was found.
