Chasers are ALWAYS welcome - any European or South African or Japanese activator would be thrilled to be called by a VK chaser as it’s a DX contact. Although S2S between summits is the aim (and the hard part of the action as both ends tend to run low power and limited antennas), chasers are of course also part of the event. We only ask that if you hear a summit calling another summit, you let them in first and if you can hear a summit calling but the other summit doesn’t hear him (or her) you call for your contact and then let the activator know that there is a summit calling, so that it can be given priority.
Some chasers who aren’t able to get to a summit but have high noise level at home are going out portable to a park or to the coast to get them a better chance of hearing the activators.
With over 40 summits currently planned to be activated (some have not yet alerted) and the number growing each day, you’ll have a lot of stations to chase whether they are in VK, ZL, G, ZS, JA, EU or even VE - good luck and above all enjoy.
