On July 28, 2007, N6MI and K6VCR hid three transmitters for the all night transmitter hunt.
The first transmitter
(tones plus “K6VCR T1” in Morse Code) ran four watts into a 5/8 wave vertical
antenna. This transmitter was placed on the south side of Krakta Ridge (off
Highway 2) in the
The second transmitter
(“rabbit” voice) was a KF6GQ transmitter (milliwatts) on
The third transmitter
failed to come on the air. (Sorry!) The Saturday night sunset from T-3 was
really nice. See Exhibit 2 (sunset).
N6AIN found both transmitters with 84.7 miles. WINNER! N6AIN will hide in November.
N6ZHZ/KC6CYG found two transmitters with 100.4 miles.
WA6RJN found two transmitters with 117.6 miles.
WB6JPI found the rabbit transmitter (with a low 63 miles), drove to the second transmitter, watched N6AIN sniff for the transmitter, and then left the without checking in. (We think JPI was looking for spots for his September hunt.)
The weather was HOT below, but very pleasant in the mountains. We hope you had a good time.
