Video Request

I am doing a talk on portable operating tomorrow. I want to show a video that showcases SOTA style operating. It must be in English and not more than 2 minutes long. Any suggestions?

GD3CWI/P on SSB from GD/GD-001 is a good one for this. Or take your pick from the impressive catalogue of WG0AT.


Just don’t use that notorious Youtube one of a formerly high-profile participant calling “CQ SOTA” from the comfort of his car!!

Hi Les
I thought the video clip of SOTA operating from the car was removed after a threat of legal action was made. If you can find it please send me the link as a private e-mail.

In reply to G4OBK:
I’m intrigued. What legal action could be taken?

Obviously the SOTA MT can eject the person from the programme, by removing their activation and chasing records etc. But I am perplexed as to what law, either civil or criminal, that anyone could break by just “breaking the rules” in SOTA.

I’m not a lawyer though.


In reply to G3CWI:

A good clip put together by W4MPS Marc Sullivan of his and N4EX (Rich) activation of Moore’s Knob.
