After a monumental amount of work by many people, the SOTA management is pleased to welcome Japan to SOTA.
Putting this new association together has taken a team of people a long time and has taxed the resources of the SOTA summits team so I am delighted to see that we have been able to finally get the summits into the system.
As usual don’t thank me, all I did was make a few slots in the database so that Japan could be uploaded and I got that wrong! The real work was done by other people, Andrew VK3ARR / JI1GBE, Guy N7UN, Toru JH0CJH plus input form our summit team of Jim G0CQK, Peter ON4UP, Csaba YO6PIB & Simon G4TJC. If I have missed anyone out please shout and I will add you to the list.
There are 4 associations and about 3300 new summits which is enough to start with!
JA - Japan - Honshu
JA5 - Japan - Shikoku
JA6 - Japan - Kyushu & Okinawa
JA8 - Japan - Hokaido
Please join me in thanking everyone who has worked long on bringing this to fruition.
The database is ready for JA activations and chases. The ARMs (which are dual language English/Japanese) and the ability to spot/alert should be online soon.
