The Bittern DX Group Fox Hunt team were once again triumphant in the annual NARC organised hunt held Wednesday 6th July 2016.
Setting off from NARC HQ at 7.45pm, the Bittern team consisted of Chairman Balders M0HET driving, Alec G3YOA, and Adam 2E0TKZ, working as bearing takers and Thomas 2E0TKZ oevrseeing operations.
Very shortly into the hunt the team had to decide whether to go North or South of the river – a major decision that would affect the outcome of course. Having taken a couple of bearings from the South, the team decided to go to the North – which fortuitously proved to be the correct direction. The teams Top secret weapon (Alec) doing a superb job with his DF kit.
The Fox was eventually found against the Church wall at Wickhampton at about 9.45pm The Bittern team locating in the shortest distance travelled. At completion everyone retired to the Rampant Horse for refreshments and LOTS of BANTER by the other NARC members which was only to be expected after such a crushing defeat!
Great fun was had by all and we extend our thanks to NARC for all their efforts. Till the next time chaps!
