Fox Hunt This Weekend (Front Page Promo)

COME ONE COME ALL AND HUNT WITH US!

This Saturday (Feb 24th) we have another Fox Hunt taking place. This time we’ll head out to East Roseville, east of I-80 and west of Sierra College. The fox will start transmitting at 9:30 AM on 146.565.  Hope to see you all there.

Need to borrow equipment? Reach out to Doug (W2VX), Greydon (KC6SLE) or Jon (KI6RT) on the W6EK 2m repeater.

Tips for a successful hunt: A directional antenna and attenuation will come in handy for this fox hunt. 🙂
