T-hunting (Transmitter Hunting) is a sport/hobby/execrise which
involves searching for hidden radio transmitters.  Most participants
are ham radio operators.  The way it usually works is this:  One
person hides a radio transmitter somewhere in a very large area (up
to hundreds of square miles).  This radio tranmits audio tones or
Morse code on a particular frequency periodically (30 seconds each
minute).  Hunters, miles away, hear the radio transmissions, and using
directional antennas, attempt to locate the transmitter in the
shortest time, or by driving the fewest miles.  The winner gets (has)
to hide the following month.  Other variations include on-foot hunts
in a large park, multiple transmitters, and VERY clever transmitter
disguises.  Transmitter hunting is also useful for locating downed
aircraft (ELTs), and locating persons interfering with public saftey
radio frequencies.  For more information, check out:
