A series of mobile bearings taken over flat terrain en route to a hilltop fox.  Bearings were recorded in clear locations at key intersections as the transmitter was approached from the southeast, south, and then west.  Most of the crosspoints are in or near the park where the transmitter is located.  Learn more about linking Doppler bearings to your computer or phone in Homing In for August 2019.
