FOX NEWS ALERT!
Two foxes have been spotted in the Nashua area! It has been reported that N1FD-fox1 was heard on Route 3 this morning on 146.565. It has also been reported that N1FD-fox2 could be heard from close to N1FD-fox2’s location on a frequency of 146.535.
We spoke to a long haul trucker who was shocked to have heard a fox in Nashua. “I was just driving along listening to channel 19 on my CB when I decided to check out some of those Ham Radio frequencies. All of a sudden I hear this loud sing-songy tone coming over the radio!”
Authorities have asked all Hams to be on the look out for the foxes. It is advised to get out before the snow hits. The first fox is said to be tame and hiding out right on a side trail – you won’t even have to get off the trail. The second fox is said to be more feisty and will take more caution to bring in.
Authorities have also asked that you sign the log book and post here upon capture.

FOX NEWS ALERT: The Fox has been found by Fred, AB1OC and Bob, W1FDR from the PART Club. When asked what technique he used to find it, Fred replied that he followed the fox prints (pictured above) in the snow.
He said that Jamey, KC1ENX wins the award for the most devious fox hider. More pictures will be posted after the hunt is over so as not to divulge the location of the Fox.

Repeat from the other topic:
I also heard the big one at my house in Hollis both with my satellite crossed Yagi (manually pointing of course) and with an HT and tape-measure handheld Yagi. Did not hear the smaller critter.
I went out searching before the snow, but never got quite close enough to hear the 3rd harmonic. I did get close enough to hear it 10KHz off. Totally forgot to try the small fox. Insufficient experience and/or too little gain on the antenna, I guess. Next time I’ll go with someone.
Thanks for the opportunity/excuse to get out of the house and walk around in the brisk weather! Looking forward to seeing the pictures to see whether I really was close!

Congratulations Bob W1FDR and Fred AB1OC!
Were you able to find both foxes or just the larger one?
