Well done Gerard. Now for 100,000? It’s a fine effort requiring perseverance, especially given your significant local noise.

Well done Gerard. It’s always good to know that if propagation to VK is open on a band then you are likely to be the first to respond!

I also see that you and Peter, VK3PF are the top 2 VK chasers in all ZL-OTA award categories, so your achievements go well beyond SOTA.

Look forward to many more QSOs.


Well done Gerard, a huge effort and always a pleasure to have you in my activators log.

Thanks Andrew @VK1AD and all for the kind words.
It has taken almost ten years of chasing to reach this one.
May take even longer to reach 100000 Ron. Luckily I am blessed with relatively low QRM for the location otherwise it would not be possible. Much better to earn the points as S2S though.

One yardstick I use is the chaser points to activator points ratio. If this is twenty or under it seems about right. YMMV.

Congratulations, Gerard!
And thanks for being my first, and, I think, only, VK S2S.
Onward to 100k.
