I’m delighted to announce 2 new associations have gone live and 2 associations have been updated.
New associations: Estonia ES, USA West Virginia W8V
Updated associations: Greece SV, Spain (South) EA7
Estonia is not a very hilly place but along with AM Gary Hess ES1WST, we have been able to find 3 summits that qualify. If there were more we’d have added them.
West Virginia is a much bigger association of approx. 350 summits spread over 8 regions. AM is John Huggins KX4O.
Spain’s update is to delete 4 duplicated summits. These were found during the initial validation of this associations data but slipped through due to finger trouble and sneaked in when the association went live last month.
Greece has been updated with new summits and revised positions.
This brings the current totals to 71 active associations, 619 regions and 54133 summits. You’d think that would be enough but there are many more associations in production!
Please join me in thanking both the AMs and my colleagues on the MT for the work that goes into locating, documenting, verifying and handling associations.
These updates are now active on the database so you can activate/chase and log them. They will appear on SOTAwatch for spotting and alerting, along with their ARMs in the very near future.
