Non exclusive frequency!


#1

It is always sad hearing SOTA chasers who disturb ongoing QSO’s on 7.032 and claiming exclusive rights for SOTA. Bad hamspirit! This morning some guys were transmitiing “vvv” with no call interfering a QSO of DM2BRF/P (no SOTA).
The SOTA activators are usually good enough operators to find a new spot!
Stop this bad habit,

Same happens yesterday evening and it is also mystery, that some chasers take a sledgehammer to crack a nut, i mean, they use 1KW (QRO) to contact an QRP-Station like a SOTA activator on an QRP Frequency! :-((

Do they send their callsign when they chase people away?
