grounds of the King Gillete Ranch. This Recreation area has a
designation of RC17. W6SD will setup in the park in the area shown on
the map. Although our start time is 10 AM, May 28, it would be nice if
some people came early to obtain a picnic table. The grounds open at
8am. Lets operate from 10 am to 2 pm. Bring your own chair. Operating
frequencies will be ssb 14.343, 18.150 ------------ cw 18.088, 14.065

second lot is $7 for all day. In the near lot there is a 2 hour limit
of free parking. Directions: Exit the 101 freeway at Las Virgenes
Road. Head South to Muholland Drive, turn left and head East about 600
feet and the entrance is on the right (South side) about 600 feet from
the intersection. If you come to Stokes Canyon Road you went to far.
