I just wanted to see what other activators and our chasers thought about this year’s new activity (International Grid Square) along with activating a summit. Personally, in the past I have uploaded all my contacts to LoTW, though I know many in SOTA do not. However, I’ve only ever changed the county I’m in and have not included the grid square. I’ve been pondering whether or not it would be too much a pain to include the (4-digit) grid square each time. Then again, I’m sure many summits are in areas with low populations that would be very desirable to chasers (and perhaps may even get a few new chasers involved in SOTA while looking for grid squares).
Just in case you’re wondering, the exchange of grid squares on air is not required, just the contact confirmed in LoTW.
Chasers, what are your thoughts? Have any other activators thought about doing this?
Just curious, thanks for the input!
