Hider: JOE K0OV and TOM WB6UZZ

Our attempts to raise attendance at the Fullerton Radio Club T-hunt on 18 April were only moderately successful. WB6UZZ and I were trying for a combined Industry Hills and Mt. Wilson bounce, and apparently put plenty of signal at Colima Road. The transmitter ran 400 milliwatts into almost 100 feet of coax going down a ravine to an 11-element beam pointed across Pathfinder Road west of Brea Canyon Cutoff. The transmitter was less than 100 feet (of course) from Portside Drive north of Mary Ann Lane. All this effort did not stop N6AIN and crew from finding it in about 30 minutes.

There was a decoy (non-transmitting) foxbox in the main lobe of the beam next to Pathfinder Road, but nobody signed in there.

For the speed demons, there was an optional T2 on another frequency chained to the 57 freeway fence, accessible from a gate off Fallow Field Drive near Riego Drive. Almost everyone found that one, too.

 Here are the results:
