Most will have noticed the new look to the SOTA website. This has been redesigned by Jon GM4ZFZ, and now integrates better with SOTAwatch and the SOTA Database. We are now in the process of updating much of the text on the SOTA website.
The old SOTAwatch - http://sotawatch.sota.org.uk
- will be discontinued shortly, with the “new” (albeit well established) SOTAwatch - http://sotawatch.org - continuing alone. This will imply changes to the SPOTlite system for live spotting from mobile 'phones, and the introduction of a new “ALERTlite” system. Full details will be announced here in due course.
A popular feature that, up to now, was only on the old SOTAwatch, is the “Recent Summit Info” list. This displays the details and links to the fifty most recently submitted articles/contributions in the Summits Information Repository facility on SOTAwatch. This enables the user an enjoyable browse through all the new contributions, and to see what has been added. The information repository now has over 900 articles and information contributions about summits, routes, local information etc. It is well worth a look when planning an expedition - click on the ‘Summits’ link above, and surf through to your chosen hill. Any links or articles will be listed on the summit page.
Thanks to Jon GM4ZFZ for his outstanding work in building these exceptional web resources for SOTA.
