Norway joins the SOTA family


#1

We are pleased to welcome yet another Scandinavian country to the SOTA family. With effect from 1st May 2008, another 264 summits will be available to chase and activate in the nineteen Norwegian SOTA Regions.

Norway now becomes our most northerly SOTA member, but for how long? Seilandstuva (LA/FM-007) is now our northernmost summit at nearly seventy and a half degrees north. Whilst its altitude of 1078m does not sound too imposing, the Arctic climate and environment, together with its remoteness, will make it a significant challenge. Who will be the first to conquer it?

As always, the MT wish to thank the Association Manager, Bjorn LB1GB, for his hard work in bringing this new Association to fruition.

The Norwegian ARM will be uploaded to the SOTA website as soon as MT workload permits.

I doubt there will be a lot of 5MHz operations from LA sotas as we are only allowed to operate on that band with club/group callsigns.

In Norway 5 MHz operation is available only to club stations. Let us hope there will be some clubs interested in activating for SOTA.
