The MT have received a number of emails asking about the validity of the EA1/M0UOK activation of EA1/BU-016. Our attention has been drawn to a number of photos showing a 4x4 vehicle at the summit and a significant array of antennas. The photos show a setup which is obviously not valid for SOTA.
Chasers need to ascertain that the activating station is valid for SOTA (person powered final ascent, no generators, low impact operation etc.) These are normally givens but sometimes operators new to SOTA may operate outside the rules inadvertently. If it should turn out that the operations were not valid then unfortunately chasers will have to delete their claims on this summit.
