summer project for YRC

George, KC9UIU has come up with a fine suggestion for the Club this summer – a Radio Fox Hunt

The FOX is a Transmitter with the ability to transmit CW ID and a carrier with an audio tone so we can try to pinpoint the azimuth. This process would repeat the cycle every 1 or 2 minutes.

Here’s a link to see more https://create.arduino.cc/projecthub/nfarrier/auto-keyer-for-radio-fox-hunting-e89b99?ref=search&ref_id=ham%20radio&offset=0

Each participant (or team) would need a handheld radio with a signal level indicatorattenuation pad to knock down a strong receive signal, and a directional antenna to determine azimuth.

the key is a directional antenna (Tape Measure Yagi) – see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmHoQrDfw-0&t=17s

More will be discussed on the nets and George will discuss this summer project during our virtual ZOOM May meeting –
