FYI, fox hunting is an abhorrent activity (i'm not going to call it sport) it's no different to seal clubbing

btw Fox hunting is a competition where ham radio enthusists look for hidden radio transmitters using a directional antenna, map and compass.

What, you think he didn't know that? Sounds disgraceful. Ham radio enthusiasts indeed. >:(

lol, no, i wasn't aware of that definition.
Only knew of the hunting where foxes are chased for hours and finally ripped apart by dogs under the banner of sport.

I do wonder where people get the idea that a single fox lasts 'hours' and is 'ripped apart by dogs'. You'll find most don't very long, and it's rather a quick death. Quicker than being shot, especially by the incompetents who usually go around shooting foxes. Also quicker than traps or poisoning.

given the poor wifi reception on y phone I'm guessing it won't exactly make a long range wifi hotspot. Probably some idiot panicking

Assuming that those aerials are folded long periodical yaggi's they are looking for far more than wifi well into the VHF bands judging by the size.

Are we sure this isn't just one of those Olympic meeter and greeter chappies, who directs lost punters to the PleasureDome, or whatever it's called? "Over there, madam" (emphasises direction with huge, nay phallic, pointy red arrow, while listening to "Chariots of Fire" tune on iPod).

That's what it is I reckon
