May 16, 1998 Fullerton Transmitter Hunt

Hiders: Deryl N6AIN & Ray N6EKS

The transmitter was hidden off of Harbor Blvd. approximately a quarter mile south of Vantage Pointe Drive (TBro. Org. Co. 708 H2), in a dirt area on the West side of the street, along the hills in some bushes. The transmitter power was approximately 250 milliwatts into a vertical quarter wave antenna. Thanks for coming out on the hunt.

* Unable to determine mileage due to odometer reading given at start was 802.45, mileage on sign-in sheet at transmitter was 84.35. Maybe the latter was an unreset trip odometer reading given, instead of the actual odometer reading(??).

Crenshaw Units were not factored in due to no effect on final outcome and a few out of the area teams participated, that do not have a Crenshaw Factor.
