The All Day
Hunt for January 26th 2008
The main T was located on Turquoise Peak north-east of Baker, CA.
The transmitter was 10 watts into a 13 element yagi pointed at Palos Verdes.
That was a fallback position because the first transmitter, the 25 watt transmitter
failed as we were setting it up. We understand that the signal was received well
at the start, and the hunt was on.
The results at T0 were:
Call Time Mileage Notes Crenshaw Results N6AIN 2:55 pm 240.0 1.022 245.28 KD6LAJ/KF6GQ/Jasen 3:22 pm 222.5 Storm Coming 1.000 222.50 WA6RJN 3:23 pm 216.5 Nice View 1.022 221.26 WINNER WB6JPI 4:42 pm 289.7 0.977 283.04
also placed three more T's, which we are disappointed to report that
nobody found any of them.
Perhaps we will save them for another time. Maybe not.
T 1 was a micro T hung in a Joshua tree along Excelsior Mine Road.
T 2 was 1.5 watts into a 8 element quad pointed WSW.
T 3 was 5 watts into an 11element yagi pointed at Clark Mountain
So here is how the hunt played out.
For those who decided to quit and go
home due to the weather, perhaps it was not a bad idea.
This was the result of retrieving T 3 on Sunday afternoon. KD6WMD got out to the T and retrieved it,
but took a wrong turn on the return. It took us about 4 hours and help of locals to get extricated.
