thanks to a QSO with Alain F6ENO/P and a ‘make sure’ QSO with Rob G4RQJ/P this afternoon, I finally reached my shack sloth 1000 points having had my first QSO on 7th April 2002. It all speeded up recently when I retired from full time employment.
Many thanks to all those stations who contributed points to my award, I hope to start returning the favour more actively in the near future. I had 256 QSOs with 228 unique summits and my log also includes 31 summit to summit QSOs and was completed from 4 different countries G,GW,EI and DL - unfortunately I did not make any SOTA QSOs from my 2 trips to OZ! QSOs were made on 6 bands and were a fairly even mix of phone (SSB & FM) and CW QSOs
Now I have to set to work on the mountain goat, I suppose!
73 and thanks again
