Hider: Don KF6GQ
Hiding Place: Thomas Brods Pg. 680 1H or H1
I found a spot to hide the T, that was I hoped
line of sight to the start. I was planning to use my new "Squawk Box" T
that I got from Bob Simons. It's real small and I wanted to make it as
close to invisible as possible. I found this plastic constructed fence
at the west end of La Sierra in the city of Chino Hills. I used a Polaroid
flat battery so it would be easier to hide than a 9V battery (these put
out lots of amps at 6V). Enclosed are some pictures. We had four
official teams and one unofficial team. All got there. All had fun finding
the T. Thanks for joining me on this hunt.
KF6GQ's signal was very weak and horizontal at the starting point, and the reason was clear at the end. His 20 milliwatt "SquawkBox" transmitter, PolaPulse battery and wire antenna were taped to a plastic fence at the end of La Sierra Drive in Chino Hills. The location was relatively high and clear, and it looked back down Carbon Canyon to the starting point 11 miles away, but the path wasn't line-of-sight.
Lack of signal caused some guessing for the doppler
