Having quit T Hunting something like 15 years ago I
accepted an invitation from N6MI to join him on a recent
all-day hunt. As it turned out we won it hence bringing up
the requirement to hide in November - the same weekend as
the CQ Worldwide DX CW contest. Of course we decided to do
both, at my QTH in Pinon Hills (near Wrightwood).
I resurrected four of my Ts, all required new batteries. I
also looked through my old sign in materials (clip boards
and plastic bags). All contained sign in sheets from hunts
some 15 years ago! We thought it would be amusing to re
use some of those old sign in sheets but, evidently, one
hunter did not share that sentiment as he added his own
sign in sheet. So, technically, nobody signed in at T1!
We hid four Ts and just to make sure it wasn't too easy
they all had the same id, simply 'AF6O'. All four Ts were
found but nobody found all four Ts.
T1 ran 2 watts to a whip and was hidden on Desert Front
road, a canyon that runs east from Hwy 2, a little south
of Hwy 138
T2 ran 30 watts to a four element beam on N6MIs truck. It
was situated in the AF6O driveway and beaming at the
Pathfinder start point.
T3 ran 2 watts to a whip and was situated at the AF6O QTH
T4 ran 4 watts to a three element quad which was attached
to a pipeline marker post. The location was Mojave, 0.6
