S2S or NOT?

Can someone help me please.

I carried out the activation of G/CE-005 Wendover Woods last Sunday 9th July.

One of the contacts was DL6AP/P who gave me a reference of DA/NI007, and I immediately thought Summit-to-summit, goody.

On looking up the reference I find it is not SOTA but possibly WFF, although the only details I can find are at the following link http://www.cqgma.eu/gmainfo.php?id=DA/NI-007 .

I can’t find any information other than that, which seems strange.

It also says the summit is 693M, so if it is why isn’t it a SOTA summit.

Hope I am not missing something really simple here.

Thanks in advance.

Nor me, but it won’t be a SOTA summit if it lacks prominence.

It’s a GMA summit. It may have been a SOTA summit in the past until it was determined it didn’t have enough prominence and was deleted. Or it may never have been a SOTA summit. GMA rules for summits are more subjective that SOTA rules.

So it doesn’t count for SOTA S2S awards. Still an FB contact.

Specifically, this GMA summit.

Thanks, Wunder, I had lost the address for GMA summits.

Many thanks to all for the clarification.

Thanks for the summit details, which answers one of my questions.

Curious as to why it was deleted as a SOTA summit when there are other DM/NS… summits with a lower prominence than this one, which is 693M.

Er no. 693M is its height above sea level not its prominence.

The prominence is less than 100m.

Thanks for the clarification.
