The start point is set by the fox and the hunt area is anywhere in Racine or Kenosha counties east of highway 45. The frequency of the the transmitter will be given at the start of the hunt and will be in the 2 meter band. The fox will give the go-ahead to begin the hunt over the Lakeshore Repeater, KR9RK 147.270+ (No PL) and then QSY to the hunt frequency.
