Thanks to some devoted Summits on the Air (SOTA) activators, back in June I went over the 5,000 point mark as a SOTA chaser. I applied for my certificate a few weeks ago and it was sent through via email from the United Kingdom today.
It was interesting to check some of my statistics on the SOTA database.
My top chased summit was nearby Mount Gawler, VK5/ SE-013, mostly thanks to Mr. Mount Gawler himself, Nigel VK5NIG.
My top chased activator was Peter VK3PF, followed by Allen VK3HRA, and then Andrew VK1NAM. Not too many VK5s in there!
And I have worked a total of 25 different associations and a total of 67 regions. With many of those being in Europe. I’ve just managed the one contact into the United States of America.
