Even if you are not allowed to express yourself: Great achievement with lots of patience involved. One of the few ones I always hope to have in my logs by the end of the day.

Keep on going.

If people get involved in ‘brinkmanship’ they should know the consequences of going too far.
I admire Mike even more as he has not ‘thrown his rattle out of the pram’ and just got on with his SOTA chasing/activating.
Lets hope after a suitable (read very short) period of penitence he will ‘return to the fold’.

ps Just re-read that and wish to state I am not infering that anyone else has ‘thrown their rattle out of the pram’ :slight_smile:

Congrats Mike and I agree it’s a crying shame you can’t thank your friends for their good wishes on on this reflector and join your own celebrations.

You are number 1 mate, the best in the world!! Enjoy the moment.

Never been sure of that one Brian.
A google gave any combination from 'here here’to ‘hear hear’ what is correct?

Mike GW0DSP today became the worlds first Super Duper Sloth 20000 points.

I spoke to Mike yesterday from SS-037 when he was somewhere around 19900pts and we agreed it wouldn’t be long before he became the first chaser to break 20000.

Congratulations Mike. I’m delighted to have helped you reach this excellent score from my activations. Your place in SOTA history is assured as 1st double super sloth. I know Mike has mentioned taking a less active chasing role on hitting this score, not stopping just being less active. I hope that I continue to work him on a regular basis.

Mike’s chasing has always been exemplory. On many occasions when conditions have been poor Mike has always strived to help me to get enough contacts to qualify the summit. And when he has had QRN and QRM, he has always ensured his contact was valid rather than claim for a dubious QSO. So not just 20000 points but 20000 squeaky clean points. Well done Mike.
