As most of you will know by now, SOTA-France officially launches on Sunday 1st April. The French team have decided to name 1st April as “SOTA Day”, and it will be publicised in various magazines and newsletters as such. Knowing how enthusiastic the French can be with on-the-air awards, I’m confidently hoping for quite a few potential chasers to be scouring the bands for SOTA stations that day.
There will, obviously, be some activity from French summits, not least by me from a couple near the Tunnel, but it would be great if the neighbouring Associations could “put on a show” that day as well, with some activations to get the new French chasers off to a flying start. Hopefully 40m will be in better form by then, but 80m and 30m could well be useful as well, not forgetting VHF for those close enough.
