mini-Fox Hunt

After our October meeting with making the 2m Tape Measure Yagi Antennas we decided to put them to work in our November meeting with a mini-Fox Hunt! For most of us it was our first time ever participating in one, but was still very successful! …all be it, a little cold.

The home-brew fox just consisted of an old cell phone with a pre-recorded tone and ID that played every 5 minutes out the headphone jack and into the mic plug on a standard HT with VOX enabled.

 

Roadside Cleanup 2012

The Pine Valley Repeater ARC is involved with many community projects. PVR has been assigned a 1.5 mile section of Highway 80 north of Richland Center as its segment for Roadside Cleanup. Twice a year, spring and fall, members of the Club clean up the clutter that is thrown from passing vehicles. Bags of aluminum cans that have been picked up is also a means of adding to the PVR treasury.

After collecting 6 full bags of trash, and 2 full bags of cans, we are at the end of a long day!
