What is a T-Hunt?
T-Hunting DefinedA transmitter hunt, also know as Radio Direction Finding (RDF) or a "Fox Hunt", takes place when one or more transmitters are activated (by the "fox"), and hunters using radios and directional antennas attempt to locate the hidden transmitters. One hunter when asked by the curious describes T-Hunting as, “Hide and Seek for Grown-Ups”.
What types of T-Hunts are there?There are several types of T-Hunts. Some are on-foot T-Hunts using multiple transmitters, while others are mobile T-Hunts in which the hunters search from their vehicles. Some T-Hunts cover a relatively small space, like a park, while others can cover extremely large areas, sometimes covering multiple states. CNARC T-Hunts are mobile hunts. Hunters use directional antennas mounted on their vehicles to locate the hidden transmitter. The winner is determined by the vehicle with the lowest mileage. The area covered in CNARC T-Hunts is bound by the 71, 60, and 91 freeways, plus the city of Corona.
What equipment is needed to T-Hunt?There are only a few items needed.
Who can participate in T-Hunts?Even though amateur radio frequencies are used in T-Hunting, anyone, whether licensed or not, can participate as a hunter since no transmissions are made by the hunters.
