New milestone

Hi Friends,

I can proudly inform you that I reached a new milestone today afternoon.
Thanks for the assistance of the activator friends, I managed to pass the 20k scores and 2700 unique summits mark on the chaser table. I know, it’s less than 2/5 of G4SSH Roy’s result, but I enjoyed the passed 2 years very much in your friendly community.
Hope to meet you soon again on the band.

In reply to HA5CW:

Your own score on the SOTA database is the only total that matters Jóska.

It is a record of your personal achievement made using your skill and experience, from your QTH, using your equipment and power, to your antenna. Be proud of your score and set your own targets.

It cannot, under any circumstances, be directly compared with the score made by any other chaser.

SOTA is not, and cannot, be a level playing field. Another chaser living in the same town will not have the same set of working conditions as you, will not have the noise from a nearby power line when it is raining, will not have problems from the neighbours thermostat in winter, will not be shielded from Northern summits by a nearby hill, will not have ignition noise from a nearby main road etc. So focus on your score only, this is the only total of any consequence.

Of course it is natural to look at the scores of the table leaders and sigh, but SOTA, like any other hobby, is always going to have people who are not only totally dedicated but who have unlimited time to collect SOTA points. It does not matter how big your super station and beam antennas are, it does not matter how enthusiastic you are; if you are at work during the day then you will not collect as many points as the retired chaser with modest equipment and a G5RV.

Congratulations Jóska. To be second in the HA Chaser Honour Roll and leading HA Uniques Chaser is a magnificent achievement of which you have every reason to feel well satisfied.

In reply to HA5CW:

Just to show they are not one trick ponies, in addition to their sterling efforts chasing SOTA, you might recognise the leading WFF chasers too

Congratulations, Joska on your achievement… and thanks to both you and Laci for your support and many contacts on both SOTA and WFF
