Database pictures

Every time you open the SOTA database a different picture appears from people activating a mountain.

Who is the lady?

Without seeing what you are seeing I would think it is the late and very much missed Shirley GW0YLS. So far the only YL Mountain Goat.

May she rest in peace,

Oh I’m sorry to hear that, Roger.

It is the only female in the list of pictures so it will be her.

Indeed may she rest in peace

Hi Peter, if you look on my web site under SOTA http://www.freewebs.com/m0sgb as I’ve got a photo of this nice lady, like Roger said the only lady to be a mountain-goat, may she rest in peace in the big sota in the sky,
god bless our SHIRLEY.

Like you Peter, I always wondered who this lady was. In the photos she has such a warm and friendly smile and I am sure she is sadly missed.

Shirley was the first YL I “met” on air and at the same time my first introduction to SOTA. We had a bit of friendly rivalry going on as I was a class “B” and she was an M3. We had an unoffical race to class “A”. I won but she didn’t hold it against me! I met her at the Llandudno Rally a couple of times as well. Always very pleasant and approachable.
I still think an award of some description in her memory and honour would be a good idea.
