Transmitter Hunt


The intrepid team of K0OV, WA6OPS, WB6UZZ, KE6IPY and KE6WHR hid the January 2002 FRC hunt. We ran about 50 milliwatts into an 11-element beam at the end of Edgewood Lane in Yorba Linda, overlooking a driving range and aimed toward Santiago Peak.  That apparently wasn't enough power for a good mountain bounce, but it fooled several hunters into approaching via Lakeview Avenue. A couple of them walked up the hill from the driving range (containing the wrong kind of Tee's, of course). Some drove to within 100 feet of the transmitter, decided there wasn't enough signal, and drove back out of the new housing area. At least two were fooled into driving up Carbon Canyon Road. I guess that makes it a successful hide.
