The electronic scoring equipment worked perfectly.  "E-punch" operators were Brian DeYoung K4BRI and Matthew Robbins AA9YH.

After finishing, competitors downloaded their "e-sticks" and received a printout of their elapsed times for each fox found and the total.

The foxoring competition took place on Friday at Mitchell Memorial Forest in Cleves, Ohio.

These low-power foxoring transmitters are inside plastic coin cases.
