Wirral & District Amateur Radio Club

North Wales 2m DF Hunts


This bi-annual event was organised by Tom G4BKF and at it's peak gravitated by popular request to the 4th Sunday in April and the 2nd Sunday in September (Unless conditions made it unsuitable, when if you were a regular, you would have received an email of explanation).

Unfortunately since 2012 it has not been possible to arrange any dates .. perhaps life is becoming too full ? but unfortunately enough suitable participants to make it worth while could not be found.  The high price of fuel has certainly had an effect as the day out travelling around North Wales does cover some miles !

If you would like to consider another day out in the future fox hunting, then please send Tom G4BKF an email at  g4bkf@wadarc.com

Below, you can browse all our previous North Wales DF Hunt events although for many reasons it has not always been possible to include a full report with photographs.

We thank everyone for their past support and enthusiasm for this event, particularly those who drove some distance from the midlands to be at the start on time, and those of our own members who also wanted to enjoy participating .. but instead kindly offer their services as fox for the morning and/or afternoon events for everyone's enjoyment.

We can promise those taking part an excellent day's sport in some of the most beautiful scenery of North Wales.  We stress once again that this event is not just open to 'experts' (there were not many !!) but to everyone who is enthused by the thrill of direction finding.

The only 'variable' to the day is the weather but even here it has been extremely kind to us over the years, but do come prepared as it is possible to start the day in sunshine and finish in pouring rain and visa versa.

It is our prime objective, that everyone attending has an enjoyable day out playing radio while improving their skills at RDF and adding to their abilities at building antennas, attenuators and map reading.

Our plans for the future ?  Well, if you would like more information, or be added to our mailing list or know of anyone else who might like to join in our DF activities .. then again, please contact Tom at g4bkf@wadarc.com
