I am new to SOTA (like the whole EA1 association) and learning every day about its workings. The other day I uploaded my first log and checked the activator statistics and award schemes. There is something that puzzles me and would appreciate if you could clarify it to me.
As far as I understand, as an activator you have to make 4 QSOs from a summit in order to get the points associated to that summit. Making more QSOs will not give you any extra points for activator awards.
So if you walk to a summit with a walkie-talkie and make 4 local QSOs on 2m FM, you will get the same points as if you carry an HF rig and antennas and make 400 QSOs on different bands and modes with different countries all around the world.
Am I right?
