SOTA NEWS JULY 2017 - Part 2
LX, F, DL, ON tour – Luc ON7DQ
LX/ON7DQ/P … F/ON7DQ/P … DL/ON7DQ/P … ON7DQ/P …
I’m planning another SOTA tour, on the way to the HamRadio in Friedrichshafen.
I’ll split each ride in three days.
On the program : several FL/VO and DM/BW 10 point summits, interesting for my score … but also for the chasers !
All details will be posted on the alerts page.
I will activate 11-19 july except of course when I’m on the fair or SOTA dinner, where I hope to meet many SOTA friends, should be a fun event. On the 11th I will do 2 LX/LX summits, and on the 19th I will do 3 ON/ON summits.
73 and hope to work many chasers!

Triple Three Peaks Challenge – Glyn G4CFS
As part of a year long charity challenge known as the Triple Three Peaks Challenge I am taking on the Welsh Three Peaks.
On the 4 July 2017 I will start at Snowdon (GW/NW-001) then move on to Cadair Idris (GW/NW-009) finishing at Pen y Fan (GW/SW-001). Whilst this is a solo venture, I will not be able to spend a great deal of time at the summits. I will, of course be activating each summit on 2-fm calling on 145.500MHz then moving to first available clear frequency. My estimated timings are on SOTAWatch
I will give advance warning and start notification on SOTAWatch . I am particularly worried about the first one due to its early time so would really appreciate a handful of early birds looking out for me.
I will be carrying an ‘Open Tracking’ GPS tracker and I will publish the URL for the tracking website on SOTAWatch closer to the start.
Later in the year I will be taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge as well and will promulgate those details later.
The third element of the Triple Three Peaks Charity Challenge is the Alternate Three Peaks Challenge. This runs from 1st January – 31 December 2017 and entails climbing the equivalent height of the three highest mountains in the world – Everest, K2 and Kangchenjunga – a total of 26,045 metres or 85,450 feet. So far I am at 13,410 metres or 44,000 feet of climb this year.
Further details of the Triple Three Peaks Charity Challenge can be found at https://triplethreepeaks.wordpress.com/
All of this is in aid of Parkinson’s UK a charity very close to my heart and one which needs a lot of support. My aim is to raise £2500 this year.

Supported by: Ordnance Survey, Merrell UK, Open Tracking, Primal, Kit Shack & Buff

SOTA NEW ZEALAND REPORT from Warren ZL2AJ
SOTA Activity Report for May / June 2017
List Summits activated
The winter months are typically a little quieter for SOTA. This period there are only 13 activations as the cold and wet generally puts off most people from venturing outdoors. Some of the notable activations this month include Wynne activating Mt Elliot in VK2, Wynne activating the summit of Kapiti Island Tuteremoana, John and Jackie jointly reactivating Puketutu, an easily accessible summit just south of Auckland and Gisborne region being activated for the first time with 3 summits activated.
Some may have heard my SOTA backpack was stolen in April along with 2 FT60’s and a KX3. If you are offered any equipment where the origin looks suspicious, please let me know. There are not many KX3’s in the country. I would be very keen to get it back along with the other equipment. This made the activation of Cape Kidnappers ZL1/HB-153 a little tricky, and it was qualified on VHF only. Access to this summit was difficult to arrange so I did not want to pass this opportunity up.
I have purchased a small APRS transponder for my new SOTA pack, an AVRT5. This self contained tracker transmits 1 W and I am hoping this will be visible when I am out activating in the future. Look for APRS ZL2AJ-7.
Gisborne was a new region to activate and I had scheduled a day of activations before my 2 days of teaching in Gisborne. With the help of Mike ZL2CC Te Kapua was put on the air first. This summit is on private land however Mike knows the land owners and was able to get us permission to activate it. This is the fourth “153” summit I have now completed – an odd statistic. This summit is also the home of 950, the Gisborne UHF repeater. I then headed back to Mike’s where I was treated to morning tea with his wife Adriana. Following this I headed North, to Tokamaru Bay, then turned inland to activate Pirauau ZL1/GI-077. A long and windy road to Arakihi South ZL1/GI-089 a roadside summit where it was dark by the time I had finished. The road was so windy I gave myself motion sickness by the time I got back to the motel. A long but enjoyable day of activations in Gisborne.
Plenty of activity on the chaser side of things with 383 chaser contacts logged, many by John ZL1BYZ who is becoming well known around the world by activators who are always keen to have a ZL in their log.
Chasing SOTA is easy and can be done from the comforts of home. Keep in touch with activators and find out when they will be out and about, or check the alerts and spots on www.sotawatch.org. Activators remember to post your intentions on www.sotawatch.org alerts page so that you have a greater chance of a successful activation.
That’s all for this report – I hope to work you on the air. ZL2AJ.
Total Summits Activated for Period – 13
Total number of ZL summits – 5184
Total number of ZL summits activated – 117
Total ZL Chaser contacts logged for period 383

SOTA ON TOP BAND - Mark G0VOF
Hello everyone & welcome to this month’s edition of SOTA on Top Band.
Two activators logged QSO’s on 160m, during June.
On 4th June John G4YSS (GX0OOO/P) activated G/LD-023 Knott & included Top Band after a good run on 80m. John managed two QSO, one using CW & one using SSB. This would have been three if your reporter hadn’t gone for a nap & slept a little longer than intended!
John then went on to have good runs on 20m, 40m & 2m FM.
A superb activation report can be found here:
G4YSS: G/LD-023 Knott on 04-06-17
Next up according to the database was Walter KB3SBC who made one QSO on 160m using SSB at the end of a long multi-band activation of W8V/PH-002 Bald Knob on 11th June. This summit lies within a radio-free zone but Walter & a few friends were granted permission to operate QRP during their stay.
Thanks & well done John & Walter.
At the time of writing, those were the only Top band activations during June that I am aware of, if I have missed any others please let me know.
On 4 June, john GX0OOO/P Activated G/LD-023 Knott & made 2 QSO’s (1 CW / 1 SSB)
On 11 June, Walter KB3SBC Activated W8V/PH-002 Bald Knob & made 1 QSO’s (0 CW / 1 SSB)
As always, If you do have any suggestions on things that you think should be included, or if you wish to contribute tips, ideas or anything else that you think may help others on the band please email them to me at email@example.com
Until next month,

SOTA News is normally published on the last day of each month, but there will be occasions when the Editor is not available at this time, in which case it will be published as soon as possible afterwards. It can only be as interesting as the items submitted, so if you think your particular field of interest is not being covered then please submit an article by the 25th of the month.
Have you a favourite SOTA? favourite mode? favourite rig, antenna, or favourite band? How did you find your first day / month / year as an activator or chaser? Your comments and experiences will be read by enthusiasts all across Europe, the USA, Australia and beyond, in a total of 114 different SOTA associations worldwide. Your input will be most welcome.
We receive many e-mails during the month containing details of activations, milestones reached and general SOTA news. Unless advised otherwise we will use this information in the next edition of SOTA News. It is important therefore that you advise us if any information is not intended for publication.
For ease of processing, please submit your input by e-mail direct to the addresses below and not via the Reflector.
