FoxhuntWell done and many thanks to Stella, Alan, Kim et al for getting the club active in the open air once again. Please come and support the organisers if you can, even if you just come for the socially-distanced beer! Here are the details:

 

All the Hounds will be starting from Cyprus Hall Car Park.

Normally everybody meets there from approx 7.15pm.

Sealed envelopes will be passed out to those teams that take on the Foxes, inside will be the location of the Pub for those who give up!

The first transmission will be sent from the Foxes location at 7.30pm, we will be using 145.375Mhz +/- QRM, this will be 2 mins long and we will then be transmitting for 1 min every 15 mins after that at 7.45, 8.00 & 8.15 etc.

If nobody has found us by this point some general clues will be slipped out during the 1 minute chat so listen carefully or your drinking time in the pub may be short!

For those that are new to this you will need, ideally 2m handheld & small beam antenna, map (OS 198), pencil, ruler & compass for plotting signal direction.

 

Regards
