Following this meeting, BARS members can participate in a live fox hunt over the weekend. So be sure to attend the main presentation as described below and learn how, especially if you are new to Fox Hunting!
Bob Ravenstein, W1FDR will cover Fox Hunting done on the local level with lots of examples and techniques used for finding the fox in both your auto and by foot. Bob will be bringing equipment used to find the fox. He will also discuss ARDF (which is national and international fox hunting) and how and it is both different and similar to what we do locally; along with the techniques of using orienteering to find the fox.
Here is the best part! Bob is planning on hiding a fox for the club to find and to try out these techniques. The fox will be active following meeting and thru the weekend.
Bob holds a BSEE from the University of Missouri and since 1970 has run his own business in the Drum Hill area of Chelmsford.
BARS meets the first Wednesday of every month at 7:00PM at the home of Mike Raisbeck, K1TWF
