I thought I’d asked this question of the collective SOTA wisdom, but I think only in my head so far!
Has there ever been, or consideration given to, special activations? By this I mean activations of special locations that aren’t SOTA summits but are true to the competition?
OK, so a scenario might work best. I have a plan to activate Pillar Rock in the Lake District, UK. It isn’t a SOTA summit but it would be great to have the SOTA resources available for a 0-point but ‘highly interesting’ location.
Without the backing of the SOTA spotting system or indeed the dedicated chasers I would anticipate it being hard work to get contacts from what I think otherwise would prove to be an interesting contact for those into SOTA.
I can’t help but think this question has come up before?
