National Foxhunt Weekend is coming, and the annual
Xerox Amateur Radio Club Spring Foxhunt is Saturday
May 13 at the Whitehouse lodge in Webster Park.
Registration starts at 9 AM and the (hidden
transmitter) hunt begins at 9:30 sharp. The Whitehouse
is a white house ;^) on the north side of East Lake
Rd., West of Holt Rd. in Webster.
Talk-in will be on the XARC 145.29 repeater, just ask
for any foxhunter. We welcome beginners and we'll be
happy to show some foxhunting techniques if you just
ask us, and we'll even give you some clues to help
find the fox. A 2 meter receiver is all that's
required. We can show you some techniques using just
the built in antenna.
Everyone is welcome, clubs, non-hams, families. We'll
meet for lunch after the hunt to give awards and share
stories of the fox that got away.
