Hi TW, you are rigth with the frequencies. But i calculated it this way to have no interferences and it works fine finallay. By the way maby you own a radio amateur licence and knows some people from the San Diego Repeater Association? I know quite well Bob Boehme W2IRI. He worked formerly for Ametek Strazza a company which designed and produce doppler sonar underwater systems. So i introduced this systems in Germany and we used it at huge supertanker as well as at the german navy vessel. This systems measured the speed and motions over ground. We had no GPS this time but the Transit system wich deliver a fix (a correct position) about all 50 minutes. The time inbetween you must navigate with dead reckoning wich was not so good with a normal ships Log. But Transit with a Doppler sonar and the ships gyro deliver a very accurate position all the time. So Bob and me design this systems this times. So if you know him send him my best greetings

I don't have an amateur license. I know some amateur radio people in San Diego but not Bob. I'll pass your message along to them in case they know him.

If you type in at Google Earth 25 38 56.78 N 111 48 32.07 W you will come directly to the place where i pointed the Radio Relay station for the project Sontlan 1983. I placed there now two photos about the installation and the final stage. Until the placement of the geocache at this position i heard nothing news until now. Watch the post from either ncampion or from 4x4abc.

We are now in may 2016 and the work is done. A geocache is placed and I received photos from top of the radio relay hill. My original idea has been to place the Memoriam Sonntlan geocache at top of the radio relay hill. From there you will have a fantastic view over the Baja California. The first who investigate the area there has been Harald 4x4abc. During summertime 2014 he try to climb up the hill to take some photos. But he run into problems which are before unknown to me. All around the Radio hill are now fences and gates which make it difficulty to arrive the “parking place” position. This produce a lot of delay to him and finally he gave up to arrive the top. Please see his report in this threat about the problems. To my time there have been no fences and gates at all.

Later on ncampion offers me to climb up the hill and take photos there. But than the hurricane Odile arrives the Baja California and stops all activities.

Longer time after Odile I placed a new call at this threat. Tom TMW and his friend Bill offers me to have a look to the radio hill. Also both, coming from the north, running into fences and gates. At a ranch the meet the owner of it, Mr. Salvador. He said the way up the hill is very difficulty due to heavy rain just before. So the stop further activities that time.

In April 2016 Tom wrote me they start a new expedition with a team to Baja California. We discussed about the place of the geocache. We decided it not to place on top the hill it will to difficulty to go to this place instead Tom made another proposal. After return of the expedition I get the confirmation pictures from the radio hill are taken and the geocache is placed.

As I wrote in this threat I offer the following: the first three geocache hunter which find this geocache will receive from me a video of the constructions time of project Sonntlan Baja California.

The first three geocache hunter must do the following:
Open the geocache box and write to the logbook name, date and time. Make a photo about the content of the box as well as a photo from the logbook entry. Note down the codeword which is placed inside the box. Send me a mail with attached photos as well as the codeword to joachim.paul@gmx.com in return I will send you the video of the constructions time of project Sonntlan as mail attachment in several pieces.

The details to the geocache you will find at www.geocaching.com and there with the code GC6GP8N. Position of the geocache 25 47.900 N 111 59.260 W
If you found the geocache please sign in to www.geocaching.com and confirm your finding details there.

At www.info-inmarsat.gmxhome.de and there under “Project Sonntlan at Las Barrancas” you will find a lot of details as well as many pictures of it.

Happy geocache hunting wishes:
Joachim
from Hamburg in Germany

Thank you for the reply. To find this geocache is not so easy. But it is possible. Here in Germany a lot of people hunting caches. So i have little hope that i may send the video from project Sonntlan to somebody

Tom (TWDOE34) and his team placed the geocache.
Thank you Tom again for it. In April 2017 Tom will go
to inspect the geocache at his location.
If you are interested about the history of the project Sontlan at Las Barancas have a look to www.dj7wl.darc.de/Sontlan.html there you will find also hints about the position of the geocache which is placed in memorian of this project between Mexico and Germany.

the location is so not-attractive and difficult to reach (fences, ranchos etc) why would anyone want to go there?

Isn't it on top of a little mountain with a commanding view? I need to look again, I guess? The story is a very German-Mexican thing, like you Harald! ;)

Edit: I just looked at the location on Google Earth and it is at the base of that hill, which is near where the Comondú and La Purísima highways split, at Ejido Francisco Villa, and La Poza Grande is very close, too.

Harald it is not at the ranch we were at. That was where the radio relay site was. The cache is north near La Poza Grande. Easy drive in.
