Following the direction of the ARRL Board of Directors, ARRL has incorporated changes to the rules for all ARRL-sponsored contests and DXCC, prohibiting automated contacts. These changes also apply to the Worked All States (including Triple Play and 5-Band WAS), VHF/UHF Century Club, and Fred Fish, W5FF, Memorial awards. The changes are effective immediately.1
Plans for home-brew antennas suitable for Fox Hunting are widely available and prebuilt antennas may be purchased from a number of vendors.

SuperLINK was an Amateur Radio repeater linking system connecting together 2 meter repeaters located along Interstate 94 from the Western Border of North Dakota, through Minnesota, and into Wisconsin. It also had links extending north to Winnipeg, Canada.
SuperLINK is reportedly no longer operational.
Amateur Radio Operators interested in internet linked analog VHF/UHF radios may wish to consider IRLP.
