My SOTA & Park activator stats for 2016

I thoroughly enjoyed operating portable during 2016.  I visited some fantastic locations, including Norfolk Island out in the Pacific.  I activated a total of 12 SOTA summits and undertook a total of 98 park activations.  All up I made a total of 6,588 QSOs whilst I was operating portable during 2016.  The highlight of the year was being able to undertake activations with my wife Marija VK5FMAZ, who obtained her Foundation licence in March 2016.

A number of great events took place in 2016.  They included the 2016 VKFF Activation Weekend, the VKFF Team Challenge and the Freeze your Butt Off Contest.

I also operated portable during the RD Contest and the VK Shires Contest.

I was issued a number of awards during 2016.  Some of those are shown below.

Below is a summary of my SOTA & Park activations…..
