Summits on the Air (SOTA)

Summits on the Air (SOTA) is an award scheme for radio amateurs and shortwave listeners that encourages portable operation in mountainous areas. SOTA has been carefully designed to make participation possible for everyone – this is not just for mountaineers! There are awards for activators (those who ascend to the summits) and chasers (who either operate from home, a local hilltop or are even Activators on other summits). http://www.sota.org.ukhttp://www.sotawatch.org

Here is list of New York Summits by Region. http://sotawatch.org/summits.php?assoc=15.

Some local Hams are into activating these summits. My be good future meeting topic.  Does anyone know any of them? Leave comments about this posting topic. Just login and leave a comment. You must be a member of QSY and register on this site to do so. Remember it’s FREE!

  1. Fred, thanks for suggesting yet another potential activity for either the Club, or some subgroup of members, to consider.
