Well done on the debut Sandy. You will be seeing plenty of the hills in the UK if you are teaming up with Bill!
Also thanks to the many stations who put up with a newbie like me.
This is without doubt a strength of the SOTA fraternity. Rather than “put up with”, new activators are welcomed enthusiastically, as young Edward M6NSR found yesterday - he was also doing his first SOTA. The same welcome is also given to experienced activators, but who might be doing their very first CW activation.
Now here’s an interesting coincidence:
After our activation yesterday, we were invited to Edward M6NSR’s house for his 18th birthday party. His grandad Roy G1NUS was there. Roy was a membership secretary and long-time activator and chaser for WAB - Worked All Britain, and as such, remembers Bill G4WSB well!
