Albuquerque T-Hunting History Scrap Book

The following pictures and text were taken from a scrap book kept by Jim, K5QQ. Do you have pictures from the early days of T-Hunting Albuquerque? Drop us a line so we can expand our history.

First place winner of the International Fox-Hunt competition, Kevin was the driving force behind the intense activity now going on in the Albuquerque T-Hunt scene!  Thanks Kevin.

Jerry and Lynn
Alan

This picture of Jerry, N5YYD, and Lynn was made to give to the police so they would know who they were searching for! (when they started out with the super DF'er who knows where they will wind up!!!)

Alan, N5BGC, and Maggie drive down from Santa Fe before putting on the Delta Loop.

Jerry Boyd, WB8WFK, has a computer assisted system. The system, which was featured in 73 magazine, takes data when the antenna moves, calculates max signal and multipath, and reads out bearings!! (his handicap is two kids who go on the hunts with him!)
