Me and the XYL are off to the Yorkshire coast for a weeks holiday week after next – planning to include a SOTA activation on one of the days.
I’m a SOTA newbie after my first activation from Snowdon a few weeks ago. G/TW-003 Gisborough Moor is the nearest one to our cottage.
However whilst browsing over my OS Map I’ve found a summit near to Danby High Moor which at 405 Mtr ASL is 77 mts higher than Gisborough moor. It’s OS Grid Ref is NZ 71607 01015. It’s 8.08 miles on a bearing of 329 Deg from G/TW-003.
Is there any reason why this isn’t classified as a SOTA summit ? Is there some topographic reason why it doesn’t qualify or is it just that no one has activated it and added it to the Database ? As it has a car park and a pub in reasonable proximity it would be quite handy !!
PS. Sorry for the simply newbie questions.
