New to SOTA from the Andes summits in Peru


Hello everyone.
Greetings from the Andes summits in Peru, South America.
It will be great to activate the Andean mountains and get QSOs with you all.
Hope to hear you soon.
Kind regards


Hello Anibal and welcome! We look forward to hearing your signals from the Andes!

Paul K9PM


Bienvenido, Anibal:
Estaremos encantadĂ­simos de ver nacer la primera asociaciĂłn SOTA del PerĂş para poder cazarte cuando hagas tus activaciones SOTA desde vuestras cimas de los Andes.
Mientras no haya nacido la primera asociación SOTA en Perú, no podrás activar cimas SOTA porque vuestras cimas de los Andes no estarán aún catalogadas en el programa SOTA y no tendrán todavía asignada una referencia SOTA, pero sí que desde cualquier momento, desde ahora mismo puedes participar en el programa SOTA como cazador, contactando con activadores en todo el mundo y cargando en la base de datos SOTA todos los QSOs que realices con activadores SOTA de cualquier lugar del mundo.
Tendrás que registrarte en la base de datos SOTA para poder empezar a subir tus QSOs de cazador SOTA ahora y más adelante los log de activador, una vez que la primera asociación SOTA del Perú haya sido creada.
Esperamos seguir leyendote en este Reflector.


Welcome, Anibal,
We will be very pleased to see the birth of the first SOTA association in Peru to be able to chase you when you’ll carry out your SOTA activations from your Andes summits.
As long as the 1st SOTA association in Peru is not yet born, you won’t be able to activate SOTA summits in the Andes because they won’t be yet listed and therefore they will not yet have a SOTA reference, but you can at any moment, even right now, take part in the SOTA programme as a chaser, making contacts with activators and uploading to the database all the QSOs you had made with SOTA activators from anywhere in the world.
You’ll have to register yourself to the SOTA database in order to be able to upload your chaser QSOs now and your activator logs later, once the Peru association had been created.
We look forward to reading from you on this Reflector.



Welcome on board, Anibal.

One day, I hope to have a transatlantic, transcontinental, and transequatorial QSO with you, old man.

Best 73’s!

Zoran / E70AA


There are about 10000 possible SOTA summits for Peru.


Thanks Zoran. For sure that QSO will happen soon



Yes, or even more.
I hope to activate as many as possible.
There are some especial and meaningful ones which are sacred places for the local Andean communities


Thanks Guru
The first Peru SOTA Association will be active soon.
I have started working on it.
I will start chasing this weekend.

Greetings from the Andes



Thanks Paul
It will happen soon. Andean signals on the air



Dear Guru
Hello again.
I have tried to register in the SOTA Database.
Have filled up the boxes with my info, but there is one box to select an association. The Peru SOTA Association does not exist yet.
To register in the SOTA Database and start to work as a chaser do I need to be member of an association?

Thank you



Anibal, check out this topic: Association XXX


It worked!
I’m already in.

Thanks a lot



Hi Anibal,
As Zoran recommended and you have successfully found out, when anyone from a country or area not yet having an existing SOTA association wants to start participating in the SOTA program, the option imagen must be selected at registering in the SOTA database.

What a great news that you are already working in the backstage with the MT in order to have the Peru SOTA association ready soon.

I can’t wait to start trying to chase you in those amazing great summits.
