What is a Fox Hunt? Also known as direction finding (DFing), in the amateur radio hobby it is searching for a hidden transmitter. Sometimes it becomes necessary to locate radio signals that are causing interference. These transmitter hunts help operators learn to find the offending source. Some hunts are pedestrian and held in local parks, others can be mobile and cover a large area. They are fun and train amateurs in a skill that is very useful. We try to conduct a hunt once a month. We use the Monday night net, as well as this site and our Facebook and Twitter pages, to give information about the next scheduled hunt.
