New chaser

Went to a very good SOTA presentation last week. I been trying to make some contacts but the tail end of the monsoon season has been very active.

In reply to K5GAK:

Welcome to SOTA Spencer, I’m sure the contacts will soon start building up.

As for the monsoon season, it isn’t quite that bad here in the UK, but adverse weather conditions can certainly curtail the number of SOTA activations, even those carried out using only handheld equipment. There are some very hardy souls who go out in, & even prefer difficult conditions, but they are in the minority :wink:

Hopefully as this solar cycle picks up there will be more opportunity for transatlantic SOTA contacts on a more regular basis.
