AREGs next car-based fox hunt will be held this coming Friday the 2nd of February.
Due to construction works around the Adelaide Aquatic Centre, the start location has been moved to the Beaumont Road carpark, off South Terrace in the southern CBD Parklands.
We’ll have three foxes deployed around the Adelaide area, on both the 2m and 70cm bands, so come along and have a go!
The frequencies will be:
- 145.300 MHz (1W transmit power)
- 144.390 MHz (100mW transmit power)
- 439.400 MHz (50mW transmit power)
As usual, liaison will be on the VK5RSB Summertown 70cm repeater which operates on 439.900 (-5MHz) 91.5 CTCSS. Please come up on the repeater so we know who is out hunting, and how you are faring throughout the evening! If we don’t hear from your, we may recover the foxes before you find them!
The event is open to anyone with radio direction finding equipment, with the foxes hidden within the bounds shown on the above map. We would love to see you there!
We are also looking for volunteers to hide the foxes each month. If you would like to give this a go, please contact Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org
