No Points Awarded

Sorry if this is a simple answer but I cannot find this subject anywhere in the reflector. I activated G/WB-004 today (19/02/2012), and after filling out my contacts in the database, I was awarded no points. The only clue I have for this is that I activated the same summit 2 weeks previous. Can someone put my mind at rest as I am pretty new to SOTA, especially activating.

In reply to M0IBC:

You are only awarded points for a summit once in a calendar year. However, should you activate a 2 point (or higher) summit in the summer and then again in the winter bonus period, you will then be awarded the 3 point winter bonus for the summit.

Thank you Karen appreciate your quick response. Thought I was going to end up with no hair. Regards Dave M0IBC

In reply to M0IBC:

Have you read the General Rules, Guidelines For Activators and the Association Manuals for where you are activating?

They should answer most, if not all, of your questions.

Plenty of light reading there…

All the rules are straight forward and it is worth a look.

Don’t forget that the SOTA year starts Jan 01st each year.
