Radio orienteering is an obscure offshoot of orienteering. It involves carrying around a transmitter and searching for radio signals hidden in the woods. Bonelli is a nice little park only 5 minutes from campus. Check it out!
This is basically like orienteering except there are no flags for controls. Instead, you have to get close enough to the control to recieve a radio signal on a scanner.
If you are a beginner, there will be entry-level two-meter fox transmitters, set by Joe Moell KØOV. For advanced radio-orienteers, there will be an international-rules ARDF course, set by Marvin Johnston KE6HTS.
Search for radio foxes!
