The FOX is loose

Here is partial schedule. Will be filled in as soon as
missing stations finalize their schedules. Remember gang,
this is for fun and these guys volunteered for this duty.
Missing dates probably due to email error on this end,
but we still have plenty of time to fill in. Don't panic.

They will come on with CQ CQ FOX HUNT de CALL CALL K.
or their variation of same. Then they will be attacked
by the hoards of screaming QRPers. :-)

I will repost every week to remind you, so you don't have
to save it, or if you do, remember we may run in another
station if something comes up. Stay tuned here.

WARNING: Times and dates are in UTC, so for 0000Z, it's the
day before here in the USofA. 40M chosen due to proliferation
of rigs on that band, nitetime conditions during the winter
months, etc.

Two NE QRP kits at risk here, one for hunters and one
for the huntee. The final rank is sole determentation of
the judge, K5FO. These stations will get on the
air for two hours and work as many guys/gals as possible, then
report their log here on the net. Try for short exchanges, we're all
in line to work these critters. Then hang around afterward to
get the others. In fact, after you work the station for the
week, move up 5KHz or above to first free freq and work the
rest of the internet club. As this is a QRP group, I think
that both stations should be QRP, but then there may be some
nights where you need to crank up to 10W, but here I don't
want to set any rules. Honor system in effect. Tell FOX
what you are running and he will tell you also.

I have sent NN1G MO for the two kits, to which he will hold
on to. He will ship them to the winners, once we determine
who they are and whether they want the 40-40 or 30-40 (40M
and 30M respectively). Dave, check is in the mail.

We tried to get some time in for the novices. Run at your
CW speed and the fox will match it.
