From goat to octopus!

From goat to octopus!
On this reflector EA2CW, Mikel, recently made the proposal to change the name of the SOTA award from goat to octopus and Victor, HA5LV, pushed the LIKE button :slight_smile:
Here is how I am going in future to use my 8 arms in the “octopus mode”:
First arm to hold the keyer or mike,
Second arm to key or press the mike bottom,
Third arm to write with the pencil for the paper log or type the call in the laptop or tablet,
Fourth one to prevent the antenna from not collapsing due to the wind,
Fifth arm to hold the umbrella, when it is raining or snowing,
Six arm to hold the rig for reading the precise S-Report (Some chasers always give me 599.),
Seventh arm to hold the smart phone for monitoring SOTA-Watch for a S2S-QSO,
Eight arm to held a mirror (Do not forget that the pile-up is always the mirror of the activator and not the one of the chasers e.g. phantom QSOs!).
I hope to work you tmw from HB/GR-292

I would propose changing (sorry to the awards maker) from octopus to spider, as I might need several pair of eyes, to see clearly what I’m doing with each hand (plus S-meter)

One for make shadow to see the display of the radio / smartphone.
One for keep away ants, flies, mosquitos and other insectes.
One for scratching. Insects bites :frowning:
One for wipe sweat.
One for to open another beer.
Get ready for the summer sota season!
