Next Hunt: Saturday, September 12th!
The monthly OH-KY-IN 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 (click HERE for a map).
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.
Loaner equipment will be available, so if you are interested in trying it out, please let us know ahead of time - that way we will bring extra equipment, as well as giving Phil time to adjust the difficulty level.
We will be monitoring the 146.670 repeater before the hunt if anyone needs directions, or any other info.
By the way, if you're thirst and hungry after our hunt, you can join the Brunch Bunch at 1PM.
SPECIAL OH-KY-IN HAMFEST FOXHUNT!
There will be a foxhunt at the OH-KY-IN Hamfest on September 19th at 11:00 AM - this is a beginner hunt, and loaner equipment will be available. There will also be some sort of a prize for the winner!
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 the starting location (Usually Mt. Storm Park, but check back for details each month) and be gone by 10:00am. If you show up at the park at 10:01am, you'll miss the hunt!
The hunt can't take anywhere from less than 1 hour to well over 2 hours!
