The transmitters were hidden in Rancho San Diego near the intersection of Campo Rd. & Jamacha Rd. behind the McGrath Y.M.C.A. The main transmitter was 65 watts into a 4 element vertically polarized beam hidden in brush at the edge of the parking lot. Two Micro T's were hidden on a nature walking path accessible from a staircase next to the main T. The walking path was enclosed by a metal fence on both sides which caused some stray signals from the Micro T's.
