I once put on a fox hunt where myself and assistant were in a forest preserve in the north part of the county. Had a beam pointed towards town.. all the hunters were 90% sure I was at a local farm store some 12 miles away... apparently they all wandered around the lot looking for a cross band setup.. funny thing was, I had the beam, a 2m vertical and another antenna I called "the bazooka" (2 5 pound coffee cans soldered end to end..open on one end with a rubber duck inside) and was switching between the beam and vertical, and saved the bazooka for when they started getting close.. hunt lasted 4 hours.. but we had grilled burgers and hot dogs waiting.. don't even ask about my mobile fox...hehe..
