SOTA Live stream from 4 summits with the World-Wide Chaser on "Virtual Hamfes 2021” in JAPAN

The volunteer Ham group set up "Virtual Hamfes 2021” Online Zoom on Nov. 13.,
though JARL announced the cancellation by COVID-19 Tokyo Ham Fair 2021 without “Plan B”.
SOTA JAPAN joined "Virtual Hamfes 2021” and made a Live stream broadcast from 4 SOTA Summits with the World-Wide Chaser.
"SOTA AHA! Let’s play on a global scale.”
Activator: JG1BOK on JA/ST-017
Activator: JS2VVH on JA/SO-068
Activator: 7N1FRE on JA/TG-022
Activator: JL1SDA on JA/HG-274
Chaser: JH1MXV
Host: JG0AWE

Now the video is published on the site "Virtual Hamfes 2021”.

Only in Japanese but you can find our passion for SOTA.

Thanks ALL, 73



Thank you Hiro-san for sharing the video. I worked JG1BOK and 7N1FRE on the day.

And I counted 22 JA SOTA QSO’s just over the last weekend (20 unique summits, 17 activators, including 2 that I worked for the very first time). Great activity from JA.

Regards & 73!
Andrei, de ZL1TM


Hatori-san JH1MXV chased me today on a W7W summit. He had to repeat his call several times for to get it, but we made it work. Really cool for a newer SOTA CW activator to get Japan.



Hi ZL1TM Andrei,
Thanks for your comment & FB QSO yesterday.
Although the distance ZL-JA is far = 9000km, Your waves are always reaching well.
CU agn & 73,

Hi W7MDN Matt,

14:05~ JH1MXV’s chaser map on 16. Oct. 2021

JH1MXV Hatori-san is very good ears.
His OP is also nice. If he hears DX or S2S call, He stops call and gives way.
I have only 1QSO with W7W Summit, but You have so many chances ahead of you.
Cu soon!
