I hope ALL of the regular North American activators have marked their calendars for the second annual North American SOTA event. Last year’s event was the tipping point for SOTA name recognition here. Multiple activations, DX pileups, and summit to summit QSOs attract a lot of attention, and will attract more participants.
I’m sure all of the NA participants want deeper pileups and more chaser points available in the next year. Promoting SOTA is the way to build the ranks. Even if it is a one point hill you’ve already done, and even if it is just for an hour or so, try to get a summit on the air for this event.
