31 May 2018 - SOTA by Gareth, M5KVK

High up on Sifnos, 2015

Gareth M5KVK explained Summits on the Air (SOTA) and how the UK is divided
into regions the same as the normal amateur regions, each region divided
into areas. In England there are 10 districts with 175 summits. The summits
are gauged by height to allocate a points system between 1 and 10,
naturally, 10 being the highest.

This part of the hobby is well managed by associations for each region and
information on who is on the air is uploaded to the web so those planning
to participate have some idea of what activity there is. SOTA has world
wide followers and, as we know, there are thousands of summits spread over
Europe and other countries.

Gareth showed how his logging was done as well as going on line to show how
much information there is on SOTA. He also showed his equipment which
included a small Elecraft KX2 with an output of 10 watts on HF using a
battery with a life of about 4 hours.

The evening was very interesting and members were surprised to find there
is so much information and interest about the subject, in use and on line.
