SOTA on National radio

Mention of SOTA on BBC Radio 5 Live this morning!

Listen from about 14:20


I just listened to this now. Great mention of my dad Tom M1EYP up early this morning and on the way to activate Kinder Scout G/SP-001 for SOTA. Looks like the presenters at BBC Radio 5 Live seemed interested in what SOTA is all about.

“Impressive” was the BBC presenters’ assessment.

And I suppose building radio stations on mountain summits out of the contents of a rucksack should be considered exactly that :smiley:


Looks like I’ll be on BBC Radio 5 (909kHz & 693kHz MW & + DAB + online) during the “Your Call” programme this morning, sometime between 9 and 10am. BBC are interested in my “Lockdown walks” project and website. I’ll try to sneak in a mention of SOTA if I can!

Epic fail.

The conversation went nowhere near an opportunity to mention SOTA, nor even to mention the Lockdown walks section of my website.

You win some, you lose some…

If I understand correctly does this mean that you were on air from somewhere other than “The Cloud”?
