There were five transmitters. The truck transmitter was in Rowland
Heights, on the south side of Powder Canyon regional park (near
Fullerton Road and Pathfinder), running about 10 watts to a 5/8 wave
vertical. The Three Musketeers transmitters (three GQ boxes on a single
fence post, counting as one transmitter) were at the top of a dirt
trail, due north of the truck transmitter. A 25 minute walk was required
to find this transmitter group. All five teams found the truck
transmitter. WB6JPI found the truck transmitter, but not the Three-M
transmitter. I have never seen a Sheriff or Ranger in the Powder Canyon
area, but one came by and harrased almost everyone on this hunt. Sorry!
Several teams went after the other three transmitters, which SEEMED TO BE in the Angeles National Forest. But, according to all reports, an access route was not found. I will save these three spots for another hunt, with your permission.
The results, without adjustment, are as follows: N6EKS/N6AIN 52.2 miles -- winner KD6LAJ/KF6GQ 61.2 miles -- first to find Three-M tees WA6RJN/KG6KZF 70.1 miles -- just missing a four-peat on all days N6ZHZ/KD6CYG 73.8 miles -- back from New Zealand for the hunt WB6JPI 352.0 miles -- not a typo (went up Cajon Pass) Thank you for coming out.
