FWIW, my website is up-to-date in regards to the SOTA pages. This, for once, was not a mammoth task, with just five activations over the first four days of 2021 to write up, before the tough lockdown restrictions were imposed in England.

http://tomread.co.uk
http://sotasummits.co.uk

1st - 4th January 2021

The Cloud G/SP-015 - http://tomread.co.uk/thecloud.htm - 4 activations (some nice sunrise photos)

Gun G/SP-013 - http://tomread.co.uk/gun.htm - 1 activation (unqualified)

I have also added another new route, with walk description, map and photos to my Lockdown Walks project - http://tomread.co.uk/lockdown_walks.htm *

There are now 25 routes available.

[*As featured in the Macclesfield Express]

Now up to 43 Lockdown walk routes on the site. (Lockdown 42 is a spectacular route that takes in a SOTA summit).

…plus a few QSL cards added to my online QSL gallery, including an ATNO from 6W (Senegal) - worked on 15m CW from the summit of Cleeve Hill G/CE-001 back in 2011!

The website - http://tomread.co.uk - http://sotasummits.co.uk/ - is once again completely up-to-date.

(The last update was 3rd July 2021 just before I went to sea for 5 months).

So all the activation reports, data and photos from the 20 SOTA activations I’ve done since then are all on. Here’s the direct links:

Right, now to get out there and make my website out-of-date again…
