The weather was normal for Isle of Man in January: low cloud and high winds. I struggled to get my 4th contact in because my hands gradually stopped working, and once I was done I couldn’t undo the zipper on my bag in order to replace the notepad, so I carried it down instead. I opted for GD/GD-001 because it’s a 10 minute drive from my house and the 231m ascent is via a path, which took just 20 minutes. The other peaks would have taken significantly longer and weather looked changeable, so I bagged the biggie. Predictably the Cafe was shut.
That makes sense, but next time I want more than 3 bonus points for hill-fog and 30 mph winds.
Good - call! Thanks for highlighting this important point, which I’d have completely missed. Makes sense when you think about it; there’s no UI element to indicate a S2S when you’re logging contacts on an activation, and while I’d have snuck a check-box in there somewhere the designers likely have their reasons for omitting this. Thanks again.
I think this thread is in danger of drifting away from the original topic, but I have to ask: is SOTA viewed as ‘contesting’ in context of those bands on which contests are forbidden? Sorry if that’s another n00b question - best to get these out of the way while I still have an excuse.
