It is my intention to publish the News on an alternative website to Sotawatch2, where the sota participants can enjoy the news and voice their opinions in a friendly atmosphere, without fear of reprimand. Of course some standards must be observed, but in general, you will have a voice.
Never lose sight of the fact that the News is for the Sota participants. You are encouraged to continue sending your news items to me as normal.
Details of the new site will be revealed in the very near future and I hope we can count on your continued support.
The reason for my changing to the new website is because I have just received an email from Jon GM4ZFZ accusing me of denigrating MT due to a recent post on the reflector about the sota is over thread.
I find the tone of Jon’s email entirely unacceptable and I have had enough!! The email illustrates clearly how little respect the MT members have for SOTA participants. Apparently we are not allowed to think for ourselves or have an opinion without reprimand from MT. I can’t do the news on a “do as we say or else basis”.
I apologise most profusely to Roy G4SSH for finding out this way, I have tried to contact you Roy but you must be out. I thank you for your fabulous support Roy.
Details of the new website will follow here shortly, possibly in a few days, or by email if I get the HJD treatment.
