Safety

To make the Fox Hunt safe and fun for all, the FOX will only start to transmit once all teams have reported via radio that they are in position. Then once in position the Fox will start his FOX Transmission on 433.475MHz.

This will allow you to drive to and between the various points safely with no requirement to take any risks by rushing from point to point. Operating of DF equipment will only be allowed out of the vehicle.
