Bunny Hunt

SUNDAY 30 SEPTEMBER starting at 2 PM from the Kaiser Station parking lot (by the train south of Target, near Outback Steakhouse). Take the Chemawa Rd exit from I5: Northbound Exit 260, or Southbound Exit 260B.

2m mobile hunt, multiple transmitters out, most reasonably suitable for beginners. Each transmitter will be on a different frequency. There should be time for a good team to find all the transmitters in 2 hours or so, but you can just find as many as you feel like. No prizes, just the thrill of the chase. Some might be urban / suburban Salem, others might be in the more rural areas to the North and East.

Talk-in / coordination on the 145.29 repeater (I don’t remember the tone offhand) or call my cell phone 971-226-9628.

I may have limited room in my car this month for folks who want to ride along - its a great way to learn. Let me know beforehand so I can confirm that I have space.

I know this may not be a convenient time and/or location for some, but we try to move it around to give everyone a chance to participate. Would some other time / day / location work better for you? Let us know and we’ll try to schedule something accordingly. We had a great turnout last month, and I hope we can get a couple more good hunts in before the weather turns bad.

Happy Hunting!
