From the hidden transmitter, the starting point in Palos
Verdes was on a 275 degree bearing.
(pointing toward the start point).
A second (fail-safe) low power transmitter (identifying “N6MI T-1”) was placed about 10 feet from the main transmitter, to ensure that a signal would always be on the air. This was a KF6GQ box, running into a vertical whip.
The quality of Pigeon Springs Road was BETTER than many
t-hunt roads. But, N6MI’s fog light just...fell off the
truck...on a bit of rocky road.
(An addendum from Scott: According to the Nissan mechanics: the bracket holding in my left fog
light just broke in half and the light dropped onto the dirt; the screws on
both front mud flaps sheared off; and the leaf springs got a little dirty
(and squeaky ). It would appear the road was a bit rougher that I thought.)
KF6GQ and KD6LAJ found the road in the late afternoon, along with N6AIN. They decided not to test their luck on a rough (but fun) section about four miles up the road. While the weather was warm and sunny, the teams failed to walk the two miles to the hidden transmitter.
