Let me start by saying, being primarily a SOTA activator, I’m not a collector of chaser points, although, I do work as many activators from my home QTH as I possibly can.
However, I do collect summit to summit contacts, because, as Brian G8ADD so succinctly put it, these are very special and I still get a buzz when someone calls “summit to summit”, whether SOTA, WOTA or HuMP.
After just over a year, I’ve finally taken time out to enter my summit to summit contacts into the Database (a couple nights of misery I might add) and was surprised to find I’d crossed the magic 1000 point hurdle.
This was thanks to Alan M1EYO, who on the 24 March, provided me with a 10 point summit to summit contact from GW/NW-003 Glyder Fawr to G/WB-005 Long Mynd, completing 1000 summit to summit points.
Since the 2 January last year, I’ve been fortunate enough to accumulate 347 summit to summit contacts, many of these due to the much harder work of other activators. For their huge effort, I’m extremely grateful…
