Hamcon/Foxhunt-99 Photos

by Joe Moell KØOV


Foxhunters swarmed over Battery Farley-Osgood at old Fort MacArthur. Microtransmitters were out of sight in metalwork atop Battery Farley and in a display of ammunition cans in front of the museum at ground level.


Left: A micro-T was in this rucksack of this "soldier." Right: Glenn Allen KE6HPZ is about to find it.


Nobody figured out that there was a transmitter under the back seat of this roving jeep.


Telephoto shot from the museum showing hunters closing in on the ammo-can transmitter that was southwest of the Korean Bell.


Is it this one? One of my van's antennas is radiating, a little field-strength meter is a good way to check them all.

Great setup, but I'll bet it gets heavier and heavier as the hunt goes on.
