Hi everybody! New SOTA person here. I lead an informal club for a dozen friends here in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. We have done Field Day together for several years. Now we want to branch out and enjoy operation throughout the year. I’m planning monthly SOTA events for the next six months. To start off, we will operate at easily accessible locations using our ordinary field day gear. We plan to emphasize 40m and 20m on phone and CW. I am TRYING to teach myself digital modes- so far, I’ve only managed to get on FT8. If anybody has operated from Arizona, please contact me- I could really use your advice! To everybody else- I hope to work you soon!
This is Pete, WA7JTM, and I am the SOTA W7A Association Manager for Arizona.
I am currently on the road, but when I get back we can get together and talk all things SOTA.
The AZ bunch is quite active, and we already have a number of SOTA events on our calandar.
We slso have a W7A page/group on the .io domain where we post plans, events, and discuss whatever. Like Facebook light.
Anyhow, i will get with u later next week sometime.
