I don’t know if the answer to the following question is something the database can easily provide if it’s rightly queried to by the database manager @MM0FMF:
What is the World’s most chased summit?
Is it G/SP-015?
Congrats on this many activations of G/SP-015.
You’re going to have to prepare something special for your 1000th activation.
G/SP-015 is Toms address the postman delivers his mail there now.Geoff G6MZX
Is there already a single-summit Shack Sloth? If not, who will be the first?
Who has Chased Tom the most on The Cloud?
Tom, is the XYL Ok with your new primary QTH?
Inquiring minds want to know.
72, Bruce W2SE
No joking apart I don’t know how Tom has the stamina and will to climb the cloud on most days I have to admire him Geoff G6MZX
So should you now use /A (alternate QTH) as a suffix instead of /P when on The Cloud?
Well done Tom. Good luck on activation number 1000 - or will you save that for a special occasion such as the S2S event on March 10th, where you are alerted to be on … (Drumroll) THE CLOUD!
What, wait two weeks before activating The Cloud again?
Not likely, I’ll be up it today on my way home from work - with a 2m handheld.
Well, let me then be the first one to congratulate you on your Millennium Activation!
Big thing (at least for your health,Tom )
Congratulations a big achievement, Who was your top chaser for that summit? I guess this now makes you a Mountain / Summit Hermit.
I don’t know about the top chaser for The Cloud itself, but overall my top chasers are:

Of my 43664 activator QSOs, 26566 have been from The Cloud. So only a fraction of those I work actively log the chases. There’s probably plenty of people out there that would have pretty hefty chaser scores - but who have never logged anything!
It’s what I expected. Altberg having more because more of the activations are HF CW. The Cheshire Three (Shining Tor, Cloud, Gun) have attracted many, many more quick FM activations were it’s much more likely you’ll have someone on the summit for 30mins tops with a simple 2m setup maybe working 5-10 QSOs.
What would be nice would be to break those numbers down to chases logged per activator. That would push Altberg up. From your comments, most chased summit with fewest logged chases would be interesting. That would give bigger results for Cloud etc.
Callsigns I have worked from The Cloud 100 times or more: (not many active chasers in this list)
I can see several well known contesters in there who would not submit logs to us.
18 out of the 31 I reckon. As it stands, that is. You never know who’ll retrospectively get the bug and belatedly enter all their SOTA contacts (and they do all know I’m doing SOTA from G/SP-015).
Ok here goes with G/SP-015 activation #1000. See you on the air in a few minutes!
We should be able to calculate calories expended climbing and activating the summit and also calories consumed in on-summit snacks, soup, pies, pints, pickled eggs, scotch eggs etc. As longs expended exceeds consumed were in good territory.
