I’ve been away from SOTA for a while. I started of activating summits in the G/SE region as 2E0JJD a while back, but getting contacts could be a bit of a nightmare. SOTA just doesn’t seem to be a big thing in the South of England.
However, after a recent weekend away in North Wales turned into 2 of the most successful SOTA activations that I have ever done (resulting in a pile-up of approx 5-10 stations on 2m FM) I realise that SOTA seems to be much more popular further north. There didn’t seem to be any shortage of people to talk to.
This has re-ignited my interest in SOTA and I’m already planning a weekend SOTA expedition.
I can see from the website which summits are the most popular with activators, but I want to know which summits the chasers are lacking and which summits will draw the most interest from chasers.
I’m considering a possible trip to Scotland at some point, but at the moment I’m focusing on the North-Wales region, maybe extending to Mid-Wales, the Pennines and the Lake District if the interest is there.
So there you go, any summits that you are keen to get in your chasers log that just don’t seem to get activated very often (or ones that you keep missing when they are activated) I may just make a special trip of it, especially if there is interest from more than one person.
I’m open to any suggestions?
