The 2005/2006 Winter Fox Hunts
Winter '06 FOXtravaganza!

The QRP Fox Hunt Committee invited all Foxes and Hounds to participate in the Winter '06 FOXtravaganza.  ALL of the Foxes, were be on the air at the same time-- THURSDAY,  MARCH 23rd, 2006 -- for a frantic 90 minutes beginning at 0200Z.  The 40M Foxes were on 40M, between 7.030-7.050, and 80M Foxes were be on 80M between 3.540-3.560.  Foxes who served on both bands were allowed to take their choice, or split their time between the two bands.

The exchange was the usual Fox Hunt exchange of  RST, SPC, Name, and QRP Power.  Foxes posted their logs to QFOX after the event, and certificates were awared to the top Foxes and Hounds on each band.  Hounds didn't have to do anything except have fun.
