The NEXT Fox Hunt is: Saturday, April 13, 2013
Fox Hunts are BACK!
That's right, folks - the monthly OH-KY-IN Fox Hunt is back! Our monthly
fox hunt is held on the second Saturday of every month, start time is 10:00 AM. Setup usually occurs at least 30 minutes prior to the hunt start - at 10:00:01, we are gone!
We begin at Mt. Storm Park in Clifton. Come out and see how we set up, look at our equipment, ride along if you like, or give it a try yourself. It is surprisingly easy to get started, and we will help
anyone who wants to get into it.
We will be monitoring the 146.670 repeater before the hunt if anyone needs directions or any other info.
See you there!

So what's a "Fox Hunt?"
According to Wikipedia, Fox Hunting is an activity involving the tracking, chase, and sometimes killing of a fox, traditionally a red fox, by trained foxhounds or other scent hounds, and a group of followers led by a master of foxhounds, who follow the hounds on foot or on horseback.
While Amateur Radio Direction Finding (ARDF) doesn't involve anything so grizzly-sounding, ham radio fox hunting is an exciting event. OH-KY-IN Fox Hunts take place the 2nd Saturday of every month, beginning precisely at 10 AM. The radio action happens on the output of the 146.670 repeater.
The "fox" will be somewhere out in-the-field of the Cincinnati Metro. The "hounds" will leave Mt. Storm Park and be gone by 10:00am. If you show up at the park at 10:01am, you'll miss the hunt!
