Portugal Joins SOTA

The SOTA MT is pleased to announce that the Portuguese SOTA association is now active from today.

Association Manager is Manuel, CT1BWW and Region Manager is David CT1DRB. There are 54 summits in the initial association but I’m sure this will increase as more summits are positively identified and verified. All the various websites have been updated and are ready to go.

One of our newly appointed MT members, Jim G0CQK, has been very active in helping the team in CT get their association together. Jim had barely joined before we had him working on this new association.

Please join me in welcoming our new association to SOTA and everyone who helped to get everything ready in time for the launch date.

Andy, MM0FMF

Although the initial number of CT summits is not great, because of the great work by David CT1DRB, we can anticipate another 100+ summits being added to the CT association very soon.

There goes the challenge of little more than one a week to complete in a year!

I look forward to many more CT calls in my log from now on. Congratulations to all those involved. I wonder if any of those in Portugal interested in SOTA have 5 MHz licences? I already have some contacts on that band with CT calls it would be great to hear more. That is if CT 5MHz are allowed portable.
