    The Nashua Area Radio Society will be releasing two foxes this weekend in Nashua. The foxes will have fresh batteries and will be released early Saturday morning and be available until Sunday in the late afternoon.

    To find both foxes you will have to first find the long-range fox on 146.565 MHz (third harmonic – 439.695 MHz). Once you have found the long-range fox you should be able to hear the shorter (smaller) fox on 146.535 MHz (third harmonic – 439.605 MHz). There will be a small log book and pencil with each fox so that the hounds (that’s you!) can sign their call sign to take credit for the find! Please also post here after you find the fox(es).

    Happy hunting!

    I am hearing the fox here in Hollis, NH! Give a listen to the attach wav file. Listening to it on our yagi. It is to the east of us. Let the chase begin!

    Fred,

    I’m curious if you can also hear the smaller fox on 146.535? I put the little stub antenna on that one and could not hear it from the highway although I could hear it fine from the “bigger” fox.

    Hi Jamey,

    We listened for the baby fox but did not hear it in Hollis. Its probably out hunting with its large mother fox….

    I also heard the big one at my house in Hollis.  I went out searching, but never got 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!

    BTW, when this is over, could you post a photo of the real thing?  I did not exactly know what I was looking for.

    Burns, I thought of posting a picture of the foxes but forgot to take actually do it.  I will post a picture of the foxes in the future. I’m also thinking of posting hints to help with the success rate.

    Thanks for hunting! I’m looking forward to more hunts.
