Hound gang: Doc reminded me that the T in RST is for tone and isn't part
of overall signal strength and he's right. I simply forgot that bit from my
Novice exam. OOPS!
Herewith is the corrected, final log from the N/T+ fox hunt from Tues.
11/25 UTC). Eleven!! contacts and only two repeats from the first hunt.

Thanks to everyone for staying with me, especially Steve. I wouldn't have
thought I could even hear that soft a signal (114) let alone pull
information from it. Also, judging from the signal reports to and from the
hounds, I've got to improve my antenna.
The fox hunt is the most enjoyable and terrifying experience in ham radio.
And apparently it shows. When I came out of the radio room, my wife took
one look at my face and burst out laughing. Said she had never seen such a
wide-eyed/wild-eyed look on my face. I'm looking forward to my next stint
as the fox.
The QSL cards from both my hunts are going out this weekend.
