September 27, 2011 CARP Transmitter Hunt Recap

The Clovis Amateur Radio Pioneers sponsored an evening Transmitter Hunt on Tuesday, September 27th. Four teams started the hunt at 7:15pm.

Teams that Participated:

  1. Mike KG6MSV (A)- 15 minutes to main Transmitter, 7 minutes to Transmitter 2 = 22 Total Minutes. 7 Miles
  2. Ron N6MTS & Robert KG6QHL (B)- 27 minutes to main Transmitter, 23 minutes to Transmitter 2 = 50 Total Minutes. 7.5 Miles
  3. Tom N6MQG (C)- 89 minutes to main Transmitter. 30 Miles
  4. Steve N6JXL & Ray KB6LQV (C) – DNF

We are trying a new scoring system with this hunt. With the variation of  equipment being use, we will be using 3 classes to help level the playing field:

  • Class A – Team can hunt on the move and not have to stop to take readings. This includes mobile mounted beams and dopplers.
  • Class B – Team has to stop and pull out equipment to take bearings. This includes hand held beams with attenuators.
  • Class C – Basic hunting equipment. This includes HTs, mobile radios with omni antennas, use body fade, no attenuator, etc. (This class includes hand held beams, but using no attenuator)

Using the new scoring system tonight’s winners are Mike KG6MSV for Class A, Ron N6MTS for Class B and Tom N6MQG for Class C.

Our next hunt will be Saturday November 5th at 10:00am, starting from Hwy 41 and 145. Hope to see all of you there.

2011 Clovis Amateur Radio and Electronics Swapmeet

2011 CARP Swap

The 2011 Clovis Swap was well attended by valley hams. The rain from the previous night did seem to keep some sellers away but there were plenty of deals to be had. There was also plenty of ragchew sessions across the parking lot while the deals were happening.

Thank you everyone who attended the event. Hope to see you all next year.
