Dear Elliott, K6EL
Thank you very much for ur congratulations! Without you I would not (jet) have realised my record. I am not a regular SOTA reflector reader and/or writer. I prefer activating summits and making S2S-QSOs instead of reading the SOTA reflector. I do it right now, when my wife is driving me to a summit (while we are wating in a traffic jam)!
Dear SOTA activators
Thank you very much for over 10,000 contacts s2s and over 50,000 points s2s. Without you this result would not have been possible. I lock for much more S2S QSO with you. On high summits I only use a whip antenna. Thank you for ur passion with my week signals.
Now I am retired! But when I was a teacher at collage level, I did preparations and correcting test on summits. Whenever I heard a SOTA spot on VK porte-a-log, I stopped my teacher work and made a S2S QSO!
