Foxhunting via satellite

I am giving a presentation about satellite tracking software to the local club next week.

Their theme for the year is fox hunting.   I thought I remembered that some time in the past there was talk of or an actual event that took place of doing a foxhunt via amateur satellite.  I seem to remember something about transmitting a tone and using the shift to determine the location.
Now this may be a couple of cross synapes and I am getting my stories mixed.

If anyone knows of any such event or better yet participated in one, please let me know and pass along some of the particulars.
