Look, for goodness sake, grow up some of you !! this thread was posted for people who requested simplicity and to avoid ambiguity of what was happening on the 4th Jan.
Its not here to start bickering and “mines bigger than yours” type debate !!!
At the last Sotaforum meet/gathering, Chris (2E0FSR) suggested we do a NP gathering in the Christmas holidays, it was a great idea and most of us present at the gathering said we would be up for it, thus the event was born. Chris then posted a list on the Sotaforum for us all to pick a summit to do, the list was populated and anyone who wanted to take part was freely able to post in the thread the summit they would like to do. That list is in the Special Events section of the forum, where it is updated and maintained and offers current and accurate information.
Tom posted on the Sotaforum to indicate he and Jimmy would be considering a summit and said for the benefit of all it would be a good idea to keep it simple so to lessen confusion, by posting this thread we are trying to keep it simple by only having one list for all to refer to.
Yes, the Sotaforum is a members forum and as such to post or browse you need to register, which is free and the admin are not intending to sell your details to MI6 either so you are quite safe, and it is with the members safety in mind we make the forum registration based, to keep out unwanted spam, inappropriate content etc. There are a very small number of people that report having problems getting in, but I have not received an email or message from them, so I cant solve the problem they are experiencing until I know what the problem is, the majority of people register without problem but for those with issues pls email email@example.com and I will help you register. It is not a sin to register on the forum, nor will you be considered a traitor or a defector from SOTA, as a number of the MT are regular users of the “live chat window” and post quite regularly.
On a personal note the last thing I want to see is the return to the clash of forums we experienced a few months ago, as Tom quite rightly said we can work together and for the benefit of all involved in SOTA. I suggest we get on with organising the Sotaforum NP Funday in the way the originator intended, a bit of fun playing radio in the place we all love… the hills and fells of this great country.
