Fullerton Radio Club
Hider: Richard N6UZS
Hiding Place: Serrano Park, close to Serrano Road/Apache Creek in the
Since KF6GQ was unavailable for hiding duties this month I volunteered
to hide for him. He loaned me one of his ammo can T's that put out 2.5
watts on a continous basis. I ran that into a 4 element Yellowjacket Quad
that I aimed out east towards Pleasants Peak and Sierra Peak hoping for a bounce.
Monte KE6GQO arrived early at the start point to help me test my
signal back to the start point. I was elated to learn he was getting
anywhere from 75 deg to 110 deg. which made it appear I was up in Chino Hills
State Park or the eastern flank of Anaheim Hills. After the hunters left the hill they were getting a direct signal for
the most part but that northeasterly bounce off the Chino Hills was still readable.
First hunters to arrive just 2 miles and 3 minutes apart were
KE6GQO / KK6KK and N6AIN / WA6PYE. GQO is declared the winner with 10.9
It was interesting to watch ICZ on the Edison Power road just
500 ft above us attempting to drive in. No access but LOTS of slippery
and thick mud from what we saw on his truck when finally arrived.
