“Transmitter Hunting for the Whole Family!” Joe Moell, KØOV

This program was originally scheduled for the April meeting.

Looking for a ham radio activity the whole family can enjoy? Want an outdoor “techie” sport that will make kids set aside the video games and smartphones? Joe Moell, KØOV, told us about the fun of radio direction finding (RDF) and the many variations such as T-hunting, radio-orienteering, and foxoring (attendies now know what this is) and tha we may already have the needed equipment. As a bonus the same equipment and skills can be used to find RFI.
