Saturday 9/23 and Sunday
9/24 San Diego, CA
The Southwest Division ARRL Convention
T-Hunts will offer something for everybody!
Saturday night’s hunt will start at
6:00PM. It will be a medium boundary hunt and will be timed (over
at 8:00PM). Standard clearance passenger cars will have no problem
with this hunt. There will be two transmitters, vertically polarized.
The main T will have a 30 second duty cycle and be at least an
S3 signal at the start point. The secondary T will be low power
and sniffing will be required to locate it.
START POINT: EAST END OF PARKING LOT
Gather after the hunt at a local eatery to share food and beverage.
Prizes for first and second place. Sunday’s hunt will begin
at 2:00PM. This hunt will be a mileage hunt that will end at 7:00PM.
Once again, standard clearance passenger cars will have no problem
with this hunt. This hunt will have multiple transmitters and
various polarizations. Duty cycles may vary but there will be
at least 10 seconds of signal from each T every minute. This hunt
is intended to be a challenge.
START POINT: SANDROCK ROAD ENTRANCE TO MONTGOMERY
AIRFIELD IN KEARNY MESA
Prizes will be awarded at the completion of this hunt. If I get
enough RSVP’s I will host a BBQ at the final transmitter.
Please RSVP to Tom Sneden, K6VCR at 760/535-7761 or email email@example.com
on or before Thursday 9/21 (sooner is better!).
Did I mention that there will be prizes for BOTH hunts…
We would like to encourage all T-Hunters to participate
in these hunts. If you have questions, please contact Tom Sneden,
K6VCR for details (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For the Fullerton Saturday night crowd, I have patterned Saturday's
hunt to be "doppler friendly". We will be taking pictures
of teams and equipment setups for publication. If you would like
to submit a list of your equipment to go along with the pictures,
email it to me or bring it with you to the hunt. To be eligible
to win a prize, you must be a registered attendee of the convention.
Standard T-Hunt rules of engagement apply. Private roads and NO
TRESPASSING signs must be obeyed.
