Micro-Fox T-Hunt Transmitters
Byonics carries these Micro-Fox transmitters for Hidden Transmitter Hunting, also called Fox Hunting, Bunny Hunting, or T-Hunting.
These transmitters are small, self-contained, and easy to hide. They are great for on-foot or driving hunts, or as secondary
transmitters after people find the primary T.
Just conenct to any 2-meter SMA antenna, such as our V2 or V4 antenna, add a battery and
configure with your callsign, and hide the transmitter.
The Micro-Fox 15 is a 10-15mW T-Hunt transmitter capable of transmitting on any 2-meter frequency (144MHz - 148MHz).
It can be heard over 3 miles away, so it's great for a walking or ARDF style hunt.
A standard 9V battery should provide about 20 hours of use at a 50% duty cycle.
With the serial programming cable and Windows configuration software, the user can control all timing, tones, and Morse Code ID.
The Micro-Fox 15 was featured in Joe Moell, K0OV's Homing In column in the Summer 2011 edition of CQ VHF magazine!

2-meter frequency (144MHz - 148MHz). It runs on 3 AA batteries for about 20 hours at 1/2 duty cycle.
