Transmitter Hunt For

August 3rd 2002

Hiders: Dave N6IDF & MELANIE KF6GWV


Transmitter was located in the hiker parking lot directly across the from the candy store on Ortega Hwy (74). T was 50-watts running through a Cushcraft 4-element yagi mounted on a tripod about 4 feet above my car. We were pointing at a large chunk of granite on the hill to the Southwest. Hunters reported a momentary signal from the start point and then nothing for several miles....... Here are the results:

 N6AIN/WA6PYE   56.7Mi               8:45PM
 N6XFC/N6MJN    61.1Mi               8:40PM
 K6SNE          91.0Mi               9:30PM

 It is our pleasure to announce that the team of
 N6AIN/WA6PYE will be hiding the September hunt.  (-;
