CARP October 2nd 2010 T-Hunt Results
On Sat night I put together a hunt for the local CARP group…lots of fun.
Hunt started a 6:43 from Letterman Park with 4 teams participating. There were 3 transmitters used at a location behind commercial businesses at Cedar and Bullard.
The main T was ¾ watt into a 4 element yagi that was rotating 360 degrees for most of the hunt sitting on a wall about 6’ off the deck.
Second transmitter was approx 50 milliwatts inside of an Altoid can with a 19” whip. Transmitter was stuck in the bushes at ground level at the far end of the parking lot. Very difficult to see.
Third transmitter a 50 milliwatt board with battery and a pair or 19” leaks making a dipole. This was stuck inside a military green fiberglass pole approx 4’ long and inserted into a well manicured hedge…also very hard to see.

This hunt was fun and I was a bit afraid of pushing the envelope but alas these hunters hung in there and did a good job.
Certainly would like to see a few more participants.
Thanks for the opportunity of putting this on !!!
[Thanks Marty!!! Matt and Greg has volunteered to be the fox for the next hunt. Watch the CARP website for more details for the next hunt!]
