Congratulations Gerald on achieving 5 x Mountain Goat.
Et moi, je suis ton copain. Alors tes points sont un peu les miens.
Super score, j’ai encore du boulot avant d’arriver à ton niveau.
SOTA FEVER FOR EVER !
Congratulations Gerald! Well done!
Seeing such achievements, I sometimes feel like a SloathGoat still in my 800 activator points after nearly 7 years…
My big respect and admiration to you.

Thanks very much for your words.
First licenced in 1981, i was looking for DX with some good antenna at home.
Then, i had to move for the city of Nice in south-east of France, and gave up all my radio activity.
12 years later Bob F5HTR rang me on the phone to talk about SOTA, and one week later we went together for my first activation, it was june 2009!
Since that glorious day, i bought an FT817, and never stop enjoying Sota-QSO from the splendid mountain aera where i live.
I feel well when, on summits i can ear all my loyal friends calling; sometimes i remember those who are now SK.
I would say thank you to the Management Team for the job they do.
Thank you Bob F5HTR the French Association Manager.
Thank you Roger F5LKW my share-partner
Thank you to all the chasers for listening my too weak sig.
SOTA is part of my life for more than 11 years, and hope i’ll be able to carry on for still a long time.
See you next summit, Gérald F6HBI
Congratulations, Gérald! You are very dedicated to achieve such an honor. I am delighted to have you in my log! Best wishes and see you on the summits. de CT7/K9PM Paul
