Hello from VK land downunder,
This notice is intended for readers in VK ZL and JA.
The 2018 VK1 Winter SOTA QSO Party will be held on Saturday 4 August 2018 where VK1 activators have the opportunity to freeze their butts off on a cold chilly mountain peak. Average overnight temp for August is minus five (-5) degrees +/- one or two degrees
This year’s event will commence at 9 am local for 2.5 - 3 hours hours of SSB, CW and FM S2S madness. You can expect to see operations on 3.5 MHz through to 2.4 GHz.
Subject to no rain, I am hoping for a large turnout in the order of 15 activators on local and distant VK1 peaks.
SOTA activators and chasers around VK, ZL and JA or indeed anyone anywhere in the world are welcome to join in on the premier VK1 Winter S2S extravaganza.
You may find one or two activators attempting digital mode activations or coordinating opportunities to work S2S and chasers via FM satellites.
How do you get involved? Simple, post an alert now showing your interest/intention and later join us on the day.
I will update this notice closer to the planned event.
