In reply to 2E0KPO:
Just had a look at the DB and if I am seeing it right…. 5 x 8 pointer,
1 x 6 pointer and 4 x 10 pointers in a day, makes a mockery of the
award scheme IMHO
You never sign your comments with your name or I’d use it in this reply. Anyway <insert_name> you need to take a much more Zen view of the awards. The awards are not a contest but merely a recognition of achievement. Becoming a mountain goat, for example, says nothing more than you have climbed and activated 1000pts of summits. Be that 100x 10 pts or 1000x 1pts.
It shouldn’t matter a jot whether someone in a different association to you has an easier route to becoming MG. The only thing that matters is your own achievement. You only devalue your own achievement by becoming consumed with the envy and bitterness that someone else might have achieved goatdom for less effort than yourself.
Cast off the shackles of point scoring and go out in the countryside and enjoy it’s beauty, enjoy the exercise, take some photos and play radio. Believe me, when you stop worrying about the points and what everyone else is scoring, you enjoy SOTA activation so much more.
Feel free to disagree as I really wont mind or care.
