QRP FOX HUNT!
a fine fox chase, my boys!"
George Washington, Battle of Princeton, 1777
|The QRP Fox Hunt is a series of 90 minute Amateur Radio
during which low-power (QRP) stations, or "Hounds," attempt to make contact with specific QRP
designated as "The Fox."
Winter Fox Hunts
A 90-minute Super Foxhunt will be held on Thursday, April 5th, to celebrate the conclusion of another succesful Hunt season.
FoxTravaganza will be on Thursday April 5th from 0130Z to 0259Z (Friday on the Zulu clock). Hopefully hunters from both the Left and Right coasts and AK and HI and maybe DX can jump in and join the FUN. Local starting times are 9:30pm EDT, 8:30pm CDT, 7:30pm MDT, 6:30pm MST and PDT.
Every FOX, Alternate, and FOX Committee Member has been invited to participate as a FOX
and will have the option of operating on either 40 or 80. They are free to move back and forth between the two bands at any time, and they are not restricted to the usual Fox Hunt frequencies. Think of the possibilities!
All Foxes will call CQ FOX, and the Exchange will be the usual RST + SPC + Name + Pwr. That's it. Note = You can work the FOXes on each band. 5 Watts max power. Any kind of rig or antenna.
The Committee has set this up as a "personal challenge" for both Foxes and Hounds. Logs and comments can be posted on QFOX (see link at bottom of this page if you are not a subscriber) but this is just for the fun of it and no official scoring will be done.
Good luck, and may the Fox be with you!
The 40M QRP Fox Hunt began on Thursday, 11/09/06 and concluded on Thursday, 3/22/07.

The QRP Fox Hunt Committee wishes to thank the Colorado QRP Club for their generous sponsorship of these hunts! We especially want to thank the many hams who have helped with administration of the hunts from time to time, Marshall, at MorseExpress, for all of the web assistance he provided CQC and the QRP Fox Hunt since their first appearances on the Internet!
