I feel it’s time to update the images that are displayed when you log on to the database. Apart from one of myself(*) recently added, the rest have been there for some time. So I’m looking for some recommendations / suggestions etc. Post a link in this thread and we can all have a look and express our views.
SOTA is almost worldwide now, so I’d like a few more from outside of the UK to demonstrate this fact. Photo’s should be definitely SOTA related, they could be of an activation in progress or a view of a SOTA summit or some SOTA gear.
Before you all write to complain, fear not… there’s one other original photo which I am determined to keep and that is the one of our late friend Shirley MW0YLS sat on a grassy hill on a sunny day having a SOTA QSO.
To start the ball rolling I’m proposing this outstanding photo taken by Bernhard DL4CW a few days back. I’ve seen 3 cloud inversions in my time but none of them compare to this amazing and delightful view.
(*) I keep the database going so I feel it is a small price for you to pay to see me sat in the snow. Anyway, Mrs. FMF took that photo and it’s been in QST and won me some money so I intend to milk it for all it’s worth!
That could be a right pain if you got a visitor to the summit during an activation. Y Lliwedd GW/NW-008 was bad enough when Paul and I activated it. My guess is that you opted for somewhere lower down within the AZ after visiting the highest point.
