Here is your opportunity to make a QSO with a skydiver and receive a one-of-a-kind QSL card.
For 9 years a small groups of hams, and a few skydivers who are also hams, have come together to bring you this fun, exciting, and unique way to make a ham radio contact. The skydiver will jump out of a plane from approximately 13,000 feet and deploy his canopy right away to utilize the altitude. Attached to the skydiver is a payload jam packed with amateur radio equipment. Not only will you be able to make 2 meter simplex contacts but you will also be able to track each skydiver via APRS but watch it all unfold from live steaming video.Continue reading Parachute Mobile – Mission 34 – Mar 16, 2019

Due to a week signal the starting point was changed to Mckinley and 168. Once vehicles started to caravan to the new start point Rick (W6KKO) had to peal off due to a phone call. John (K6MI), unbeknownst to Rick, followed him from the starting point. However, when Rick pulled into his house in NE Clovis and closed his garage, John realized he wasn’t where he was supposed to be. With three teams at McKinley and 168, and John at Fowler and Shields, the fox Mike (KG6MSV) decided to start. The hide location was the Winery Ave. pedestrian bridge over Hwy 180. First to find was Marty (K6KTP), second was Ron (N6MTS), followed by John (K6MI). With three hunters at the finish, TOM (N6MQG), used all of his officer safety training and decided to cut his losses and refused to follow the signal into the ghetto. Fun hunt.Mike H. (KG6MSV)
The next transmitter hunt will take place Saturday, Nov. 10 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM during the F.A.R.C. swapmeet. The location is Lion Automotive on the S.E. corner of Gettysburg and Clovis Ave. 2944 Phillip Ave., Clovis, CA 93612. The swap opens for buyers at 8:00 AM. This is a casual on foot T-Hunt during the F.A.R.C swapmeet. It will allow you to test your equipment and close-in hunting skills.
The transmitters will be on 146.565 MHz and or 144.565 MHz. There will be two low power transmitters in the general area and each will have a distinct tone. Use this hunt for practicing your close in skill. Leave the transmitters where you find them so that others can participate.
I also want to announce that Mike Herlihy (KG6MSV) will be the new T-Hunt coordinator. As the fox, Mike has put on some legendary hunts in the past.
