This is slightly off-topic, but I know that somebody here will have the answer.
Over the last couple of weeks, I have worked some stations activating summits with a DA/ reference. I know that these relate to non-SOTA summits which are valid for the German Mountain Award (GMA). I was, however, under the impression that GMA had its origins around 2008 when a large number of non-compliant German summits were “retired” from SOTA. Having looked at the GMA website this morning, it appears that GMA contacts are only valid from 01/04/2012. My knowledge of German is insufficient to read the detail, so I’m hoping that somebody in-the-know can provide an explanation.
Is this a re-launch of the 2008 programme, or something entirely new?
