20 years of SOTA in a few graphs

Quite a success story…


Great info! Thanks!

What’s interesting is that we have over 10000 people on the SOTA Facebook page and getting more every day. I am one of the moderators over there.

It’s great to see the Activators are most prevalent at chasing other activations as well. I assume the S2S chasing QSO score is included in the Activators chase scores. Keep up the good work folks.

Thanks Christophe, amazing.

Nice to see I’m not alone !!!

Most intersting Christophe,
In simple terms I make it a growth of 5% per year, every year, for 20 years. Few businesses or activities can claim that.
I have been active for 11 years and had not appreciated the year on year growth.

Thank you

I was preparing a few stats for the end of year and when my first piece of SQL said there had been 52000+ activations in 2022 which is around 142 activations a day I had to stop and repeat everything to make sure I was getting the right numbers.

I should have realised it by the size the DB backup files have grown to !
