Winter 2005/2006
40M Fox Hunt

The Winter 2005/2006 40M Fox Hunt will begin on Thursday, October 27th 2005 and run through Thursday March  9th 2006.  There are two hunts each Thursday, so 20 Foxes will be needed. Each Fox will be scheduled for two hunts, usually seperated by several weeks.

There are three factors that are considered in selecting Foxes:

    1.  Skill-- the Fox must be able to work through a pile-up and complete as many exchanges as possible during the hunt.  If you cannot send and receive at 20wpm you will find it extremely difficult. 

    2.  Equipment--  the ability to put a stable 5W signal out through a good antenna, and a receiver that has adequate sensitivity and selectivity.

    3.  Location--  we will strive for as wide a geographical distribution of Foxes as possible, consistent with the other requirements.


Please complete the following:






Can you send and copy Morse comfortably at 20WPM or more? YES  NO

Your primary transceiver must be capable of 5W  output and should have "split" capability  in the form of wide range RIT, XIT, or dual VFOs.
