Hi all,

Please note that in principle you will not have a station on the same band in the same mode.

To avoid any confusion, check the alerts on SOTAwatch and consider a self spot more than an RBN spot.

Happy hunting everyone, s2s are welcome.

I hope to be out tomorrow morning with the special callsign GB20SOTA from G/SP-015, so hoping for a very special S2S with TM15SOTA.

Will be out (hopefully) on a summit this Sunday the 17th so certainly will look out for you.

If all goes well shall be a unactivated summit in a remote area.

Morning (just aftter local sunrise) propagation is weird. Heard plenty of chasers on 40 metres, but not the faintest blip from any of the activators others were clearly hearing. In one case, I’d guess skip was just long enough to miss me, but TM15SOTA should have been a good distance. Maybe just the wrong direction…

FL/VL-070 is about 720kms from here, and that can be a tricky distance. Caught TM15SOTA on F/CR-209 (a little later and a rather better distance at about 1100kms away) on 30 metres CW, but couldn’t hear the spotted SSB on 40 metres. :wink:

RBN won’t cope so well with the same callsign working from more than one location, unless the alerts have been very carefully crafted and the operators are synchronising their operations. Best rely on references as given over-the-air (and the activator on F/CR-209 earlier was giving the reference very frequently). Failing that, give the self-spots more credance than the RBN spots. :wink:

Hi Armin,
Like I said before don’t take account on RBN spot

on your spot settings toggle expanded spots and you can see the difference :crazy_face:
