W7A 10-point s2s Madness day Sept 30th


#1

W7A 10-point s2s Madness Day:

On Sept 30th, 2018 Arizona Activators are going to “simultaneously” activate as many 10-point W7A summits as possible. As of September 1st we have twenty four Arizona Activators planning to operate from Twenty different 10-point summits from all over the state. The number of summits activated may even go higher, but only time will tell. Check the SOTAwatch ALERTS page to see who is activating which 10-point summit.

The action should be fast and furious, on all HF and VHF Bands, with more 10-point summits on the air than u can shake a Yagi at on Sunday morning.

I suspect that the regular SOTA calling frequencies will be quite busy for this event (DUH). I expect that we will need to spread out and move up higher in the CW bands, especially on 20 and 40 meters. Not sure how busy the SSB freqs will be, so look for our SPOTS, as many of us will be able to self spot.

So if you bored on Sept 30th on Sunday morning, and you would like to score a few hundred Chaser points in one day from Arizona please give us a call…or two…or three…or…well, you get the idea!

It’s madness I tell you, pure madness!

73, es hope to see u then

This is going to be a kick in the pants. I can’t wait! There are over 20 alerts! Unless I’m having math issues (again), there are 23 alerts on 20 summits. Fingers crossed for decent weather!

You are correct. So far TWENTY ten-point summits will be activated in Arizona Sept 30th, and we may have a few more stations on summits by then. It should be “interesting.”

This is going to be insane! I’m planning to be up on a summit here in W7W for this. Holy S2S Goatman!!

You W7A guys have it made down there. There are like TWO 10 point summits in all of W7W that don’t require mountaineering skillz and equipment (and hard to get permits) to get to. I need a W7A SOTA vacation!!! =)

Looking forward to this.
