FOBB and FOX Hunt
July 30, 2000 - Little Miami Bike Trail, Foster, Ohio
Three of us attempted to work the Flight of the Bumble Bee contest and catch the FOX.
Members of the mission were W8DIZ Diz FP#-1, Rick WB6JBM FP#-2 and Mike KB8UUW FP#-75.
Oh, YES we did catch the FOX. TWICE!!!
We walked from mile marker 12.5 to the rest stop at mile 11.3
To the right, the woods go down to the river, about 100 feet from the trail
We had a huge reflector network right overhead. Not sure if it helped or signals
