In reply to G6LKB:

Probably impossible to say yet. Some activators are on trips (e.g. Tom and Jimmy) and there will be a difference between who entered the millionth contact and who actually made it on the air.

Why do people care about things like this? Simply the fact that it’s so big shows what a Good Thing SOTA is!

While who made the millionth contact means nothing of itself, it would be fun to find out wouldn’t it?

…it also provides a good excuse for some publicity!

It might have been me! I entered 50 Activation QSOs into the database at 03:30 am this morning.

Nope. It was still 999925 when I escaped the drug induced arms of Morpheus this morning.

Just checked - Number of Activator QSOs : 1000182… but I presume you will keep us all in suspense as to who got the Golden Ticket!

In reply to G4OIG:

It’s not an easy question to ask. I can find out who entered activator QSO #1000000. But all that will tell you is who owns entry #1000000.

The 1 millionth QSO ( i.e. based on time & date since SOTA started) might not have been entered yet in the database.

EDIT: It’s an easy question to ask. It’s not an easy question to answer!
