I am newbie SOTA activator. I tried to activate JA/TK-005 but failed due to technical problems that we fixed/resolved after I arrived back home.
JA/TK-005 (Mitou-san) has a viewing deck. It is near the summit, has a shelter, no AC outlets, etc. During my failed activation, I decided to use the viewing deck as my Operating Position. Since this is a viewing deck it is literaly “on top of stilts”. Technically, I am not standing on the mountain anymore but standing on a man made structure that is built on the side of the mountain. The height is less than 20meters, best guesstimate.
Is using this operating postion for an activation valid (e.g. does not violate AZ requirements)?
