The nights are drawing out and the weather is warming up, so it is getting close to the time to re-start the Sota Fun Evenings again.
For those who are new to Sota, the idea of The Sota Fun Evenings was suggested by Mike GW0DSP in 2007 and the concept was for any activator to climb their local summit in the evening, any day, to be decided, and activate for the first half hour on 2m-fm, then the second half hour on 2m-ssb, after that anything goes re band & mode.
The Fun Evenings were designed to enhance the awareness of Sota and to encourage the use of 2m-fm/ssb for Sota. It also offers an opportunity to activate and/or chase Sota to those who are in work or school during the daytime.
Last year the Fun evenings were a huge success, with 15 summits activated on the best night. The other good point is that S2S contacts come thick and fast.
If anyone wants to do the same this year and see the fun evenings up and running let Mike know on email@example.com or on his email address on QRZ.com or on this reflector.
