Format of Event
The event will conform to the general principles of IARU events, but will be less formal than a Championship. There will be a maximum of five transmitters and an MO beacon at the finish. Competitors can elect to hunt all five 'foxes' or a specified four.
The transmitters will be separated by at least 300m and the nearest transmitter to the Start may be closer than 400m (IARU rules state 750m).

Sport Ident (SI) electronic punching will be used for both competitions. SI 'dibbers' may be hired for 1, but if not returned the charge is increased by 30.

Scale is 1:10,000. Size A4 landscape. Printed in four colours on waterproof paper.

1000 Registration opens. Information sheets issued to ALL entrants.

  • Entry fee is 5.

    Registration, Start and Finish for the 144MHz competition event will be in the car park.
    In accordance with the informality of the event the organisers will not require you to deposit your receiver in a pound before the transmitters start sending. They do expect you to respect the spirit of this concession by refraining from using your receiver until reporting to officials in the start area and then only under their supervision.
    The 'flags'for the competition will be 15cm side length.


    Competitors are responsible for their own safety and take part at their own risk. No smoking in the forest. Whistles should be carried (the emergency signal is 6 blasts repeated at 1 minute intervals).
    Both courses cross and re-cross a minor road. Take care at these road crossings.

    Loan Equipment

    Receivers for 144MHz are available on loan. E-Mail the organiser (address below) to reserve.
