My First Fox Hunt..

Penang ARDF Fox Hunt which held on 10 August 2008 was my first participation in 'Fox Hunting'. It was a very good experiance. Armed my self with 3 element tape measurement Yagi, an attenuator, 2 handy, a bottle of mineral water and sweats.. hehehe. There were 7 hunters that hunting that day. 5 of them from Perak Amatuer Radio Transmitter Society (PARTS) and another Penangites that is SWL Jeffri ( soon to be 9W2WOC) hehehe... detail report on the event can be view from

As being a beginner... i manage to finish the hunt in time. However, for first time it was a quite hard to find the foxes... Running at all direction as all 3 foxes start to transmit their signal. The first Fox i manage to find was just next to me. The signal was strong even my handy that i remove the antenna also can recieve the signal. After looking around back and forth.. finally i found the first FOX.

Again looking for the second fox also very tricky. The signal coming very strong even after the attenuator is put at the max. After going through the bushes, go down the cliff even the small river.. still can't find it... later after walk abit then saw the 2nd FOX behind the tree

Finally go to the next fox. this 1 also tricky. But manage to located it after awhile just before the time is up. It was a very fun n exhausting. I will surely join for another Amatuer Radio Direction Finding - FOX Hunting...
