It was a full moon night (why do
most all alldays have a full moon??) when I put out
the Ts. I had spent some three weeks trying to get out
of this hunt as I had an important meeting at Saturday
I decided to hide the Ts in
I have had problems with my main T,
a 30 watt Byon that seemed to run a while then quit.
After replacing the harness, I ran it on Wed for 12
hours and it never hiccupped at all. Of course it quit
soon after it was put out on the hunt. They had
nothing to hear at the start but as I was in
T3 was hidden 20 feet from T1 a 10 mW vertical T right on the road. Scott/Tom found T3 and found the broken T1 as tripped over it. They did a repair on T1 but again it quit. When I picked it up on Saturday the battery was still fine and the fans were running but the thing wasn’t transmitting. It had stayed on long enough for Doug to find it after sunset…This was a very hard T to find since it didn’t transmit often.
More fun was planned. The next pair
of Ts were located on a dirt road off of
The next was T5 a squawkbox hanging on a bush over a puddle. This T could be easily reached out of your vehicle window without getting mud all over Scotts cab. You guys will have to learn to sniff without getting out of your cars. It will eventually come to you as you get older.
The last T was a squawkbox in an Altoid can with 1 foot of coax and a 4 element beam. It was iding “WB6JPI T2 T2 T2” (I think).
