I went out Sat morning to locate a fine spot. Now since I only have a 5
mw. Transmitter, that is capable of continuous transmissions, I needed
to find a spot that had a clear shot to the start point. I located a
spot at the end of Punta del Este Dr. near Skyline Dr. It had a clear
shot to the start. Also since my wife KA6TAS was also a winner, I
needed a place to bring the dogs to be able to run around. So after all
the bad publicity of the hunt, we actually got six official and one
unofficial hunters (a recent record). We had six teams find us before
the stop time at 11:00pm.
The results as follows:
N6MJN 12.9 miles and in at 8:50 was a bit earlier.
WB6JPI 18.6 8:50
N6ZHZ/CYG 35.0 9:27
KA6UDZ/Kim 21.0 9:28 Doppler only
K6OV unofficial 10:15
N6AIN/PYE 39.7 10:20
W6DFW was a DNF at 10:35
Good to see Scott, KA6UDZ and Kim out, Scott has been on many of on foot
hunts and does very well on those. I haven't seen him on a mobile hunt
for many years. Thanks to all that came out.
