More Fox Hunt fun this weekend – Bob, W1FDR shares his experiences.
I found both the foxes but I had to work really hard to do it. First I drove to the Home Depot area off of exit 6 and found the strongest signal in the parking area of mine falls park. It was very icy but it didn’t take me long to realize it wasn’t there so I went back across the bridge to the Nashua high school, the parking lots were full with activity and I did not know the area. So I drove to the Wiggins Park area and hiked over to where the foxes were. I was going to take a picture of the strongest fox but there were so many people walking by and I was so busy talking to them I forgot. I then went to find the weaker fox and I did take a picture or I had a picture taken by a passerby.
Then proceeded to help the economy in Nashua with Christmas shopping.
KB1CGS Craig my son and myself KB1MGI John both found the 146.565 Fox.
After circling the area around exit 6 we ended up at the parking area at Lincoln Park at the end of Coliseum Ave. Craig and I went over the icy Bridge and stayed on the left trail along the water. Then we walked in circles for ever and we kept ending up at the base of a hill and still walking in circles over an over again.
When climbed up the steep hill to the main trail. At first we figured the fox was across the river behind the high school. Turning around and figured it was back down the hill. Then Craig said look at that stump I saw the tip of the antenna.
2 hours to find. Great job hiding the fox.
We did not look for the other one because it was getting dark soon.
