Hider: Richard N6UZS
Where: Salvation Army Church 10200 Pioneer Rd.
This month I decided to hide back
in the North Tustin area along Jamboree
north of Portola. Hid just south of here 6 months ago during the
Freeway Complex Fire but that hunt was poorly attended with just 2
due to all the nasty smoke.
Tee was running 5 watts thru some lossy coax into a Larsen 5/8ths
mag mount attached to some old metallic irrigation equipment in the
back lot of the church. Polarization was horizontal for the hunt with
the nulls running north-south up Jamboree and most of the signal was
directed over towards all the windy, dead end roads in Lemon Heights.
AIN and MJN took the bait and ended up with higher than usual mileage.
Jippy had some sort of failure with his Doppler which initially
got him into the nearby hills but then pulled away into the direction
of Costa Mesa.
Thanks for attending this month.
N6ZHZ 17.1 *WINNER!*
