Too bad about ON-024. I liked that one.

Me and my dad Tom M1EYP were planning to come back to Belgium (ON) at some-point to activate the remaining SOTA summits there that we didn’t manage to activate during our Benelux trip back in 2019. Unfortunately both ON/ON-017 and ON/ON-024 were SOTA summits that we hadn’t managed to activate and if it wasn’t for COVID19, we may have managed to take trip to Belgium (ON) to activate them 2 SOTA summits. However it is good to hear that 2 new SOTA summits have been found so whenever we do manage to take a trip to Belgium (ON), we will include them 2 new SOTA summits along with the remaining SOTA summits we have left to do there and that new one in Luxembourg (LX) LX/LX-005. Due to the current COVID19 situation at the moment, I feel uncomfortable traveling abroad so activating ON/ON-017 and ON/ON-024 before they are deleted is very unlikely.

Hi Peter,

A real pity you demote 2 good sota and bring in a “terril”, it is unnatural and therefor not a real mountain. Belgian Sota is already so small, I wish all terrils would get demoted and real mountains would come in effectively. For sure there’s more in Belguim then “terrils”… …

Hi Frank,

If you know any ‘real’ summits with 100m prominence in Belgium, please share the info so they can be added to the SOTA program.

Are we not on prominence 150 ?

No, Belgium has P100.

Peter,

I activated all the ON SOTA’s. So it’s nice, two new mountains in ON. I am very curious where they are. Then I hope to activate them both soon. I don’t see any info in the database (yet). What is the location of these two SOTA’s?

Hi Tonnie,
they are in the new ARM, page 7 :wink:

Luc,

Thanks for the info!

The terril may be difficult to climb, I don’t see any tracks anywhere … but on the other hand, there is a 70 kV powerline nearby, maybe with an inductive loop and a rectifier , you can (re)charge your batteries , HI !

The other one is a water tower along the road with a parking spot just across the street … that should be an easy one.
