On August 19, we held the Nashua Area Radio Club Family Picnic at Greeley Park in Nashua. There was good weather for the picnic and members brought delicious food to the potluck lunch. We all had a great time catching up with club members and their spouses and hunting for the fox. We also visited the Art Show, which was held in the park that weekend.
Fred, AB1OC hid the club’s two fox transmitters, which provided for a challenging Fox Hunt.
The picnic was a fun event for members and their families.
You really don’t have to dress like this or bring a horse to have fun doing a Fox Hunt at our annual picnic this month. Well, maybe the horse would help…
There will be two different N1FD Foxes on the loose at our picnic this year for double the fun. Also, Fox Hunting is a great activity for everyone. Furthermore, you don’t need a license and we will have a radio available for anyone who wants to give it a try.
We have put together a new Fox Hunting Kit which includes two Fox small Fox Transmitters for 2m. One is a 10-15 mW unit and the other outputs 1/2 W. They operate on different Frequencies (146.535 Mhz and 146.565 Mhz FM). They each can be configured with a number of antennas depending upon the range and environment for the Fox Hunt. Both Foxes will be on the loose at our picnic!
Bring your 2m HT and plan to spend some time tracking down the N1FD Foxes at our picnic. Also, Gene, W3UA, will be bringing some 80m HF Fox Hunting gear for folks to play with at our picnic.
Our Family Summer Picnic is scheduled for Saturday, August 19th at Greeley Park in Nashua. All club members and their family members are invited. This is the same day as the Greeley Park Art Show.
This will be a potluck lunch and members are encouraged to bring a dish. I have created a sign-up sheet. You can view it here. Please edit this sheet to indicate whether you will attend, how many family members including yourself will attend, and what you will bring.
Rumor has it a fox may be on the loose in the park that day.
We will start to gather around 10:00 am and lunch will be served at noon. Directions can be found on the club event calendar.
The rain date will be Saturday, August 26. If there is inclement weather in the forecast for August 19, stay tuned to our Forums for updates.
We held our Family Picnic on Saturday, August 27 at Greeley Park in Nashua. We had great weather, great food and had a great time with friends at the Picnic.
Wayne, KB1HYL hid his Fox, which gave us all a challenge to find it. Here are Jamey and the Wayne getting ready to hunt the fox.
We had a potluck meal and more good food than we could eat. Thanks to all members who brought food and to Merle for bringing her grill and doing the grilling. John welcomed a special guest who was quite friendly. Now that was quite an eyeball QSO!
Thanks to everyone who came out and made our picnic a lot of fun!
