1999 Foxhunt Season Opener!
hunt ended up in Kankakee County West
in the rolling open fields of Limestone Township
A couple of miles SE of the Rt 113
and Warner Bridge Rd intersection.
This was a good
run for these seasoned
hunters of the Kankakee Area Radio Society.
We had three solid
days of rain prior to
the hunt, but we were blessed with a
one day window of dry weather!
These hunters came pumped and ready!!!
Clay N9IO, Cindy N9IOQ and Crystal W9IOU
(The Notorious "I/O" Bunch)
were hiding here in the foxes den.
Or, perhaps these two fellows were
the ones reading the doppler article to the
hunters from the May issue of QST.
Greg, WB9STR was the first
hunter to find the foxes den!
is sporting a new antenna this year.
And yet, he had'nt mentioned anything
about it to anyone prior to the hunt!
Billie KF9IF (left) and Don K9NR (center)
were second by only minutes.
Chip K9IOC (left) and YL Mickey (right)
placed third in this contest of skill!
The Kankakee River
a major role in this hunt.
bearings showed that
the fox was west of town and could
be on either side of the river...
There were three
highways to take to find this foxes
strategically located hiding place.
Each being close to equal in distance.
The hunters broke
up almost immediately,
each used a different route, determined
to be the first to find their friendly foe!!!
Changes in transmitter
transmissions of short duration held this
determined bunch at bay only for a short time!
