We had a small Fox Hunt at the El Dorado Hills Community Park on October 11 with 12 attendees. I hid the small 15mw transmitter in some brush along a creek bank in the middle of the park. Most everyone found the fox within an hour. Everyone got to test thier eqipment and check out eveyone elses equipment. Stay tuned for the date and time of the next fox hunt.
Our speaker for the September Zoom meeting was Clinton Miller, K0GR. Clint gave the basics for Fox Hunting and some personal stories. The link to Clint's presentation is here Fox Hunting 101 Presentation . The club will hold a Fox Hunt on October 11th at 1pm. The location most likely be the El Dorado Hills CSD Park on El Dorado Hills Blvd.
