Just wanted to thank all the SOTA activators for all that you do. I have been chasing SOTA for many years, at first only on 10m SSB where I was able to rack up 345 chaser points during the past solar cycle with a basic Technician license. Since passing my General license on March 13th of this year I have begun chasing on other bands, mainly 40m & 20m but on occasion I have been able to pick up a contact on 15m, 17m & 60m. Today with a QSO with VE6JHH on VE6/RA-030 Buck Mountain I was able to add my 1,655th chaser point for 2021 which brings my total to 2,000. Not bad for someone who operates with no more then 100 watts and a wire at the house and 100 watts and a ham stick in the mobile.
My goal for 2022 is to activate from my first SOTA so keep an eye out for my first activation in the Spring of 2022.
