Richard, G3NII was the ‘fox’ and had set up a mobile antenna in the field near the river. Some problems were experienced getting the rig to tune but the ATU was found to be the problem, so it wasn’t used.
After only 19 minutes Ian Taylor, G3ORG and Martin Pope, M6SCI came into sight having made a perfect triangle on the map to indicate our position. Ian, using the club project Top Band DF receiver noted that almost perfect (Null) bearings were obtained off the end of the ferrite rod antenna which they transferred to their map. Next, at 20:24 was Gareth, M5KVK who was also using the club project receiver, followed by Paul, G1GSN and David, G8UOD at 20:39.
At this point, everyone pitched in to help cart the gear back to Richard’s car so we could meet up at the local pub for a chat.
