It’s always a pleasure to work you Dave and very much appreciated when you call in and help us to qualify a summit.

I can also say I wholeheartedly agree with you about chasing. It’s probably the one thing keeping me sane at present - so a big thank you to all the activators from me!

I second that Dave.

I like the walk and the countryside and the radio gives me the incentive to get off the sofa.

The chasers make an activation and I am very appreciative of anyone taking time and effort to try and find me, usually in the rain, calling cq.

So very well done Dave on getting to your half shack sloth.

Heres to a busy 2011 and I’m sure you’ll be polishing your sloth before Christmas. (Even if I do keep using ssb - oops).

See you at the club soon,

Cheers,

John

Hi Dave,

I wonder if it was you calling Steve GM1INK on 80m last Saturday when he was just closing down on GM/SS-032?

I heard XIE & what I thought was M6 but the noise was just too high for Steve to hear you.

I’m glad you are enjoying chasing SOTA, it can be very challenging but it is great fun :slight_smile:

Best 73,

The bill is on the way :wink:

steve and all you wonderful activators in making a virtually house
bound persons life more fruitfull and the xyl is also happy im not

If you’re enjoying the chasing as much as I’m enjoying activating, then you’re having a ball…
