Where?.........Orocopia Mountains (Chiriaco Summit)
The Orocopia mountains have now been designated a wilderness area and the only public access is a single road that runs from the 10 freeway across to the Chuckwalla mountains. The main T was situated on this road with a view through a narrow crack back to LA. This T ran 30W to an eleven element beam.
A second T was located on a powerline road just a mile or two as the crow flies from the main T.
A third T was located a few hundred yards East of the Chiriaco Summit restaurant and a fourth T was located a few hundred yards North of the restaurant.
The sign in sheet for the main T notified the hunters that there were three more Ts on 147.585 to be found while travelling home along the 10/60 freeways.
