Summer 2005

Welcome to the
"It's a fine fox chase, my boys!"
George Washington, Battle of Princeton, 1777

The QRP Fox Hunt is a series of 1.5 and two-hour amateur radio events during which QRP stations ("Hounds") attempt to work specific QRP stations designated as "The Fox." Throughout any particular season there may be a "dual hunt" with two foxes on the air at a time. These hunts are usually conducted in CW (Morse code) but can be in any other mode the committee authorizes for a particular season. Our Summer and Winter rules pages provide all the legal details you'll ever need...

The QRP Fox Hunt Committee wishes to thank the Colorado QRP Club for their kind donation of this web page, site design, editing services, and sponsorship of these hunts! We especially want to thank Marshall, at MorseExpress, for all of the web assistance he provided CQC and the QRP Fox Hunt since their first appearances on the Internet! Also, Ham Radio wouldn't be here without the ARRL - is your membership current?


We continue receiving Email complaints that this web site promotes the hunting and killing of foxes. NO! "QRP Fox Hunt" is simply a name we've given a fun and exciting amateur radio activity that involves radio equipment, low power transmissions, antennas, and lots of skill between radio operators exchanging signals with each other - this activity has nothing to do with animals, guns, hunting or killing - thank you!!
