Our Next Fox Hunt

Rocky and Bullwinkle, that wily pair of White Rock Lake radio foxes, will be released again on February 4 and 5 from 9 AM to 5 PM!

These fox hunts are always held in the White Rock Lake area, on pubic land and within a mile of the lake. Rocky transmits on 146.565 MHz FM, and a very low powered Bullwinkle was close by on 146.545 MHz. Many club members are able to hear Rocky at their home QTH, so hunt for him first. If you find Rocky, then search for Bullwinkle.

Listen for a distinctive set of warbling tones followed by a CW ID. Each transmission is about 20 seconds long and repeats each minute.

Radio fox hunts are scheduled at the lake on the first and third Saturday of each month.

Many thanks to Dave, K5YR, and David, KG5VSR, for hosting these fun events on behalf of the club for area hams to enjoy and to practice radio direction finding skills.
