I got a no-code Tech (N8VHI) but when the World Wide Web got popular, I let it lapse.
Would I need it to locate a rocket using "fox hunting" technology?

If it's been under 2 years since it lapsed, you can still renew your license. Most fox hunting trackers use ham bands, so yes, you will legally need a tech license. I know a handful of people who use the fox/dog trackers and don't have a license though.

Depends on the frequency used. 70cm or any other ham band, yes.

If you want to have a broader choice for RDF, a ham ticket is nice but not so necessary anymore especially one is a sport flier and don't mind 900Mhz GPS trackers. Depends upon how much  one wants to spend. Kurt
