Foxhunt 2022 April 3
Photos from the April 3, 2022 Fox Hunt event at North Glenmore Park. This was a day to test out our RDF projects and techniques.
In attendance were Wilson VA6JWL, Peter VA6RPL, Patrick VE6PDS, Dana VA6DJH, Ken VE6AGR, Joe VE6JHH, and "The Kid". Did I forget anyone?
The weather was a little cool and overcast, but definitely comfortable. This was our first time at North Glenmore Park and we found it interesting.
The intention was to provide a clean radio environment that would be free from annoying radio reflections and distractions. Did it work? Not really. I am thinking that there is no such things as a location that is free from radio interference.
The first thing is that there were metal anti-beaver fences around every tree along the shore of the reservoir. It was difficult to establish a path to a fox in the trees, even when it was close. In addition, Wilson put his fox below the ridge behind us there in the photo, and appears that there was a better signal being reflected from across the water than from a few feet away.
Also, the 3rd fox was way back in the trees in the park, but the battery ran down before most of us had a chance to go hunt for it.
