30 & 32 both wrong.

34, 35 & 37 correct.

Correct Marc. To the rest of you, 14 and 26e have already been answered correctly!

BTW, the rationale behind the “One answer per post” rule is to avoid the possibility that someone else posts a correct answer before you, while you are typing up a long post of several answers! These Christmas quizzes move very fast in the first few hours!

22) One of the founders of SOTA climbed and operated off this summit and thought up the idea of SOTA whilst there?

A wild guess but you never know!

Jonathan - you have 49 correct, and 22 is close enough for me. Catstye Cam was the first summit that John G3WGV (President & Founder) experimented operating (with a handheld) SOTA style from prior to SOTA’s launch. He actually had the idea of SOTA many years before then!

Marc - no, sorry!

Another lightning start to the Xmas Quiz everyone! 41 answers down, just 15 to go. And the quiz is barely half a day old! I thought some of the questions were hard - not hard enough, obviously!

But will any of the remaining unsolved ones make it to Christmas week I wonder?

Must be a trick question if 79 is what the website says :wink: Just gotta find the trick… hmmm…

Is it for a “country” with multiple “regional associations” that we’re counting, here?

In reply to M1EYP:
45) I’d say none, as surely the opportunity to make it P100 would have been taken if there were anything to be gained by it.
