I am sure this is in the wrong category but I couldn’t find one that fits…sorry in advance.
I would like to get people’s thoughts about multiple summit activations in a single day.
I know that SOTA, like everything else in the world, means different things to different people. When I found out about SOTA and read the association documents etc, I never really viewed it as a competition or a way to get awards etc, even though we earn points for what we do. I also got the idea that activators needed to be considerate of the chasers etc.
I am looking through the activations, I see people who will routinely (not people vacationing in an area for a week or so) do multiple summits, and don’t spend much time on the peaks.
To me, even though I am relatively new, I stay up on that summit until I get (or try to get) every chaser that is trying to reach me.
The purpose of this post is not to judge anyone, but to get some insights from other people about their views of SOTA etc. Does it matter if you make contacts with all the chasers? Are you into getting the awards? Are the points more important than max contacts etc?
