SFARC runs monthly Fox Hunts where members hone skills locating hidden transmitters. Fox Hunting skills are not only fun but may be useful in situations where a transmitter needs to be located (e.g. search & rescue or tracking down interference).
Fox Hunts are a fun outdoor activity. Regional hunts may may involve driving around and taking bearings with a Yagi to triangulate on a hidden transmitter. Low power hunts may involve walking through parks & neighborhoods to find one or more hidden transmitters. Fox hunt equipment ranges from simple TOA (time of arrival) devices, yagi antennas, and or doppler techniques.
Do not have the equipment? SFARC has equipment for anyone to borrow.
Do not have a license? A Ham license is not required to participate.
