XI Bangalore VHF Day Fox Hunt - 2010
The Eleventh Bangalore Day Fox Hunt was flagged off under the banner of BARC on Sunday, 24 October 2010 from Bharat Scounts & Guides Hq. premises at 8.00 am. The first signal was received from the fox-hole was heard at 9.00 am. The foxes were Hari-VU3HEA, and SWL Shenoy winners of the last year’s fox hunt. This year 68 hams/SWLs participated in the fox-hunt.
The participants found it rather difficult to locate the fox-hole. Though they all moved generally in the North Bangalore direction, they could get within a kilometer’s radius only after several clues from the foxes.
The hidden transmitter was near Arishinakunte, off Tumkur road near Nelamangala. The first to reach to fox-hole were Mani-VU2WMY and his team followed by Kiran-VU3PKE and team in the second place.
The third place went to Guru- VU2GUR and his team. Excellent Lunch was arranged in a resort nearby on the highway. BARC thanks Hari & Shenoy for conducting this event successfully.
