The SOTA MT has pleasure in announcing that the recipient of the 2017 Sherpa Award is Jose-Antonio Gurutzarri Jauregi EA2IF (Guru as we all know him) in recognition of his contribution to the SOTA programme over recent years. Several candidates were considered by the MT for this award from the many that have made a significant contribution to SOTA during the past year and all contributions are greatly appreciated. However after much debate amongst the MT, Guru EA2IF was deemed to be the leading candidate.
This award is sponsored by SOTABEAMS ( http://www.sotabeams.co.uk ) and this year the award is a WSPRLite unit. Based on the detailed acounts Guru has produced on how he still is able to do active chasing now using a very simple antenna system compared to his large well equipped station in the past, we are sure we’ll see lots from more from him about WSPR. Please join us in congratulating Guru on the award and recognizing his contribution to SOTA. The Sherpa certificate designed by Barry GM4TOE will be sent to Guru shortly.
