January 14, 2012 CARP Transmitter Hunt Recap

On Saturday January 14, 2012, Duane KI6QEL was the fox for the CARP Transmitter Hunt. The hunt began at the Park and Ride at the intersection of Highway 41 and 145 in Madera. Six teams participated in the Hunt that started promptly at 10:13 am.

Everyone had a great time and we all met at Pizza Factory in Millerton after the hunt for lunch and to swap stories. A few of the hunters even went Geocaching afterwards. Photos have been posted in the CARP Photo Gallery.

While the hunt was measured by time, mileage was recorded at the start and end of the hunt for further scoring. Here are the results from the hunt:
