2003 NFW Weekend
Another NFW foxhunt
found KARS fox hunters in
yet another old graveyard near the Kankakee River.
A couple of years back, we found the fox in
a graveyard not far from this fox's lair.
The lure of whether or not to cross the Kankakee River,
and where, are part of the attraction for spots like this one.
The fox, a KARS
and local high school science teacher, at the
Bradley / Bourbonnais HS, Jim Schreiner, K9BIG
found a beautiful, yet well hidden spot.
Jim was changing power with his IC-706 mk2,
and if that's not all, the antenna was a home made
wire J-Pole, hanging in a tree floating with the breeze.
Talk about signal fluctuations and reflections!
This was a tough hunt, indeed...
Jim plans to incorporate
fox hunting, and HF operating
into his classroom this school year, complete
with an HF station in the classroom...
Thanks Jim, great job!
