“Jeff Reed shares his SOTA experience”
Summits on the Air (SOTA) is an ongoing ham radio contest, that encourages portable QRP operations in the mountain terrain. Each summit earns the ‘activators’ and the ‘chasers,’ a score which is related to the height of the summit. ‘Short Wave listeners’ confirm a QSO. Certificates are available for various scores, leading to the prestigious Mountain Goat and the Shack Sloth trophies. SOTA was launched March 2, 2002 and there are over 118 associations around the world.
