Pete/WA7JTM placed 4th overall and 1st in the West Coast Region in the Jan 2017 VHF contest. From the summit of W7A/MN-144 (Scarlet Mtn -DM33), Pete was able "to take advantage of the Summits on the Air (SOTA) program and the abundance of enthusiastic SOTA chasers in Arizona to finish 4th place nationwide in the category", according to the July 2017 QST article by Jim Duffey, KK6MC.
Pete, thanks for your SOTA efforts and bringing attention to the SOTA program during the January VHF contest.
obo SOTA MT, Summits Team
Awesome, Pete! That really goes a long way to promote the SOTA program.
Great job Pete, always great to put you in the log.
Thanks guys. I just love multitasking…I get to go four wheeling, take a hike, do a SOTA activation, and enter a VHF contest all at the same time. I have not found a summit with a river on it so I can also go Fly Fishing…but I am working on it!
Nice job, Pete WA7JTM.
I did a similar thing in Colorado…finished further down the list but still in the top ten.
It was also my first SOTA activation with Steve WG0AT…he was working mostly HF.
