G4SSH = 25´000 SOTA-points

Congratulations to “Mr Spot”, Roy - G4SSH
on obtaining 25´000 SOTA-points “CW-only”.

He reached this brilliant achievement with
his 5000th SOTA-QSO working Z35M/p on Z3/WM-050.

Many tnx for all your fb work towards SOTA dear Roy
and good luck on your next targets.

Congratulations to Roy.
I’m honored to be the activator who gave him the last points for this big achivement.

Congratulations Roy on your achievement.

I won’t forget that during our overnight stay on High Raise
(LD-011) for the International SOTA weekend earlier this year,
following my rash pledge to operate at midnight, which I only later
realised was actually at 0100 BST, only one station came back to
my calls (in admittedly difficult conditions) namely G4SSH. This I think
illustrates Roy’s dedication. Many thanks for the QSO Roy and good luck
on the next 25000.

Hello Roy.
Congratulation on your 25.000 SOTA-points.
Thanks a lot for your help with spot. Lonely activator know that you give an alert to chasers.
All my best 73 and I hope we’ll meet again from next summit.

Well done Roy!.. and to think CW was considered an out of date mode not so long ago. Thank goodness the faithful have kept the faith and the flame is now getting brighter. All the best for achieving your next target.

73, Gerald

Congratulations Roy on a fantastic achievement!

While never having been a fully fluent CW operator, I have always appreciated its benefits, & espoused them to other amateurs. I would love to be fluent in CW as I would love to be fluent in other languages, but, as with CW I know just enough to “get by”.

Well done on a superb achievement :slight_smile:

In reply to G0VOF:

Thank you all for the good wishes, which are really appreciated, although activators must take most of the credit.

It is becoming increasingly more difficult to be a dedicated SOTA chaser in view of the ever increasing level of background noise around our towns and cities. QRP stations, in particular, are often just rising and falling below noise level.

Thanks to the patience of activators, who are often in a noise-free environment reading a 100w signal, but stay with a chaser who is struggling to copy them.

Hello Roy,
Congratulations for your score!
Thank you for your informations and your courtesy in pile-up.
In the pleasure to find you again from summits, maybe at the end of July since the southwest of France.
73 QRO,
