Results for the Second Saturday (Pathfinder) Transmitter Hunt, Sept. 12, 1998
Vince (WA6DLQ) and I (WA6PYE) hid a single transmitter running two watts into a four element beam antenna pointed at the hills on the north east side of the 91 freeway in Corona. Little did we know that the signal would seem to bounce over those hills and give a reflection to the West Side of mount baldy? Most hunters went north. Dave (N6MJN) and Steve (N6XFC) came over Grand and got a blip off toward Corona. They played the hunch, which was correct and found us southeast of the 91/15 freeway junction on Laurel Canyon parked up against a rock cliff. See page 773 on the San Bernardino / Riverside County Thomas Guide. As you can see from the results below, the other teams went other places.
