The Boy Scouts of America maintains a great site full of valuable information covering every area of Scouting. Here's the link to their home page. http://www.scouting.org/

The Buffalo Trail Council also has a site of interest to the West Texas Scouting community. Covering events, service centers, staff & leadership and much more, don't hesitate to use it all you like. http://buffalotrail.org/

The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. To maintain such an environment, the BSA developed numerous procedural and leadership selection policies and provides parents and leaders with resources for the Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venturing programs.

Perhaps one of my favorite Fox Hunting sites to drop in on from time to time is "Homing In". http://www.homingin.com
This is also the site for the book, Transmiter Hunting. http://www.homingin.com/THRDFSinfo.html

Discover ARDF in the Americas! The International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) represents the interests of Amateur Radio operators worldwide, and is the international organizing body for ARDF. IARU Region II is the regional organization for the American continent, the Caribbean, and some islands of the Pacific. http://www.ardf-r2.org/

The Texas Amateur Radio Direction Finding website is another of my favorites. http://www.texasardf.org/

Amateur radio direction finding - on the Wikipedia site. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amateur_radio_direction_finding

The US ARDF site has some nice links on equipment, US rules, FAQ and more. Here is their equipment page's link: http://www.usardf2010.com/equipment.htm

Byonics has a lot of neat stuff for Amateur Radio Operators. I particularly like their kits. The PicCon controller is what I use as my Fox Transmitter Controller. Info on the PicCon can be found here: http://www.byonics.com/piccon/

Featuring links to various useful (external) websites, these links should help you quickly find additional information without the need of searching through "a gazillion search results - mostly unrelated to what you're looking for".
