The January 3rd 1998 First Saturday T-Hunt Results



Judging by the "war stories" we got from the hunters we must have put on a pretty good hide. The transmitter was located near the entrance to Silverado Canyon just off Black Star Canyon road. We had planed to hide in an even more obscure spot but this area is prone to sever flooding during the rainny season. Even at our current hiding place I felt that when the rain started to come down it would be best to move the "T" to higher ground. I convinced Vince that we should get out and at about 9:10 PM we moved the hidden "T" to the corner of Jamboree and Chapman/Santiago Canyon Rd.

The idea was to reflect the signal off Santiago Pk and Plesent Pk. This we must have accomplished. Mike KD6SNE drove all the way to Lake Elsinore before he realized that we were on the other side of the mountain. He then came over Hwy 74 and came up to us from the South. We will subtract the 6.3 Mi. further up the road we had to move from his score. Clark WB6ADC wound up going south on I 15 and turned around somewhere before he got to Glen Ivy. Only Dave N6MJN and Deryl N6AIN decided that they wern't going to be fooled and came directly to us. The LOR/ME team sort of did a little drive around Anaheim Hills to check out the signal before continuing on their path over Imperial Hwy to Santiago Canyon.
