This Amateur Radio Direction Finding is a lil different..

(Came across this interesting idea from VK land for Christmas and getting hams involved in the season.)

You’ll be following and listening to the fox no doubt dressed as Santa.

Yes it’s the Townsville Amateur Radio Clubs annual MONSTER XMAS LIGHTS TOUR.

Get out your Santa Hats, flashy pins and Christmas Costumes and get ready for a magical mystery tour of the light fantastic !

Australia’s famous TARC Monster Xmas Lights Tour is on again, happening Friday evening December 15th.

It’s a Drive Yourself Dazzling Spectacular and all mobile shack chariots will need to monitor 146.5MHz during the tour to hear instructions from the guide (or foxy Santa’s) vehicle.

If you do not have a 2metre transceiver in your vehicle – don’t worry as a
handheld will be lent to you.

Be sure to pack an esky with plenty of cool water and cool bananas as the tour will be happening in a dehydrating climate!

MXLT organiser Gavin VK4ZZ, with help from stage surveyors, is currently
plotting a way around the City of Townsville.

The tour should end by 10pm at a secret destination.
