I ran into them while DXing and it's IMHO a lot of fun!

So those aren't the ones where we hide five 1W 80m transmitters in the forest and try
to find them with a hand-held DF receiver?

Not in this case. Here, the fox is a human operator working QRP in a designated band segment. Usually, two "foxii" ( I don't know who invented that plural) work simultaneously. This Thursday is an exception -- twenty foxii will be let loose on the 20m QRP CW segment.

The object of the "hounds" is, of course, to work as many foxii as possible in a season. The exchange is RST, state, and first name.
