Sponsored by the San Diego T-Hunt Group & CQ Magazine World Wide Fox Hunting Weekend Starting times will be 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at 5 minute intervals. If you start at 2:00 you will have until 3:30 to complete the course. NO REGISTRATION FEES! There will be 5 hidden T’s using the MOE-MOI-MOS-MOH-MO5 format. You will be issued a “Punch card” and there will be orange & white flagging tape at each punch located close to the T’s which will be concealed. Antennas will all be vertically polarized with approximately the same radiated power from each “T”. This will be a very flat and short course compared to past hunts! For information on “International Style Transmitter Hunting” you may go to Joe Moell, k0ov’s excellent website….. www.homingin.com/intlfox.html We will have limited equipment for loan for those that do not have small 2-M beams. Bring a connector to go from your HT antenna connector to a BNC cable ( Chinese HT’s not recommended). There will be experienced Hams present to demonstrate techniques for those that want to learn about “On-Foot” Amateur Radio Direction Finding (ADRF) and a “Practice T” to experiment with before you start the course. You do not need a Ham Radio License to participate! You will be issued a map of the area with major features delineated. A compass, clipboard and pencil may be handy to plot bearings with. Dress appropriately and plan on taking water with you while hunting. There are several restrooms in the Park.
A BBQ is planned for about 3:00 PM for those interested. We will have burgers & hot dogs, buns, condiments, potato salad, drinks, chips & salsa. BBQ donations can be made on site.

The article notwithstanding, computer security is probably the highest paid profession as one reader pointed out: http://spectrum.ieee.org/.....Restoring 'Privacy' on the Internet
People are concerned that their Web search histories and other somewhat confidential things will soon be sold by our Internet Service Providers to advertisers and others. This ain't necessarily the case according to this press release from the Chairman of the FCC -- and will hopefully never be the case: https://apps.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DOC-344205A1.pdfBernie Appel, ‘Mr. RadioShack,’ Dies At 85
It always good to get the 'other side' of the story and now we have it. That said, the Internet is still not a confidential environment by any stretch of the imagination. Strong recommendation: Never put anything into an unencrypted e-mail that you would not put on a postcard.
As if adding a "P.S." to the Internet privacy discussion, FCC Commissioner O'Rielly (a Republican) said this:
From the latest Amateur Radio Newsline (Report 2058):Technology | Enchroma
NEIL/ANCHOR: Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has announced a deal for a nationwide wireless network for first responders. It's called FirstNet, as we hear from Phil Thomas W8RMJ in this report courtesy of Amateur News Weekly.
PHIL: The U.S. government has awarded AT&T the FirstNet Project. It is a $6.5-billion deal with AT&T to build a nationwide wireless network for first responders, a project that was first proposed after the 911 terrorist attacks. This decision is a major step forward for FirstNet. This will be a nationwide wireless broadband network that police, fire and other police responders will use exclusively during a major emergency. This is one of a dozen of recommendations made by the 911 Commission in 2004. Currently, the first responders share wireless networks with regular customers, meaning communications get clogged due to network congestion during a major emergency. Commerce Department Secretary Wilbur Ross announced a 25-year contract with AT&T and its partners which include Motorola Solutions. Working with FirstNet, AT&T will build and manage a network that will strengthen and modernize public safety communications capabilities enabling them to operate faster, safer and effectively when lives are on the line. AT&T will work with FirstNet to deliver a system that will cover all 50 states, five U.S. territories and the District of Columbia. Work on FirstNet is expected to generate 10,000 jobs across the company as well as its contractors over the next two years. The network buildout is scheduled to begin later this year.
