First Saturday Hunt
Hider: Bob N6ZHZ
Location of T: Near the gate on Skyline road to Sierra Peak in Corona.
The transmitters were hidden along Skyline Drive (Corona -- not Fullerton). T-1 was running 5 watts through a 4-elephant beam, pointed directly at Mt. Baldy. And the hunters tell me that it was a great Baldy Bounce. T-2 was a GQ box (the Froggy T) 100 yards before the main T -- set in a culvert in the flood control channel. T-3 was a micro T and located in a 12 oz can (empty) of Diet Coke, carried around by the Hider -- Bob (N6ZHZ).
The first hunters straggled in at about 8:45 PM, which was a little longer than I had anticipated, but that's a good thing.

Diet Coke Can was found by all, but because T-3
was truly mobile it didn't really count for
anything other than just for fun.
