2013 NA SOTA day?

Anybody knows what’s the 2013 NA SOTA day dates?

Thanks in advance.

In reply to VA2SG:

There has been discussion about this on the NASOTA Yahoo group.


In reply to MM0FMF:

Unofficial info received. Thanks.

In reply to MM0FMF:
We are considering a weekend, rather than a day. Early September is likely. Standby for the drumroll.

Consider having it the same weekend as the ARRL VHF contest. That just may give VHF a chance to get of the ground with SOTA…




In reply to WA7JTM:

I thought that this was fully covered and a decision was made. For those wanting a single day, it is September 7. For those wanting a weekend, it is September 7-8.

In reply to NS7P:

It is what it is. No problem with that.

Maybe next year we can make it coincide with the ARRL VHF contest which is the second full weekend of September every year. No impact on the HF band operations, and maybe extra VHF activity for free. A Rare Grid from a SOTA Summit could be the perfect combination to spur some VHF action.

tnx Phil

Unfortunately, you’ll end up in the middle of the WAE SSB contest.

This have been discussed over and over in the NA yahoo. I am all fine with the first weekend.

I was just looking for the date. Any debate on this should be done where it belongs, namely, NASOTA yahoo group. But thanks anyway.

73 all.
