I enjoyed your thoughtful post, and agree that the games seem
over-complex.

However, the fox hunts have been a complete disappointment to me
so far, because almost all of them for the past 2 months have been way
out west, and do not propagate east of the Mississippi where I live.
I did FINALLY hear the fox this week for the first time (AB4EL)
because he is closer to the East coast!

But the difficulty is what makes the challenge exciting and the eventual
FOX contacts will seem like a real acheivement to me when I finally
HEAR them & work them!! 72 de AF4K,
