Hi all
The Mount Everest Award from Gabor and SOTA Hungary is still going strong.

I totted up my 160 or so points of activations in G, GW, OZ and SM in 2015 and found to my surprise that I had far exceeded (22942m) the requirement of ascent and descent height of Everest. I emailed the spreadsheet application yesterday and received this smart PDF this evening from Gabor

There’s a very pretty Ham Hiker Active 30 award included as a bonus. I imagine some of you Alpine and 14’er activator types will find this quite quick to do i.e. < 40 hills in a year. It was under an hour’s effort to annotate my activator log with heights from the SOTAWatch Summits association page. Thank you Gabor.

73 es Merry Christmas de David M0YDH
