At the Summit-Steve WG0AT

At the August 2017 SVRC club meeting, Tim N9PUZ presented Summits on the Air (SOTA).  SOTA is an award scheme for radio amateurs that encourages portable operations with the goal of having fun while operating from a variety of locations. So, if you are not a mountain goat kind of operator, you can still work activator SOTA stations from the comfort of your couch at home.  SOTA is structured in such a way that anyone can participate.  There are two roles that can qualify for points and prestigious SOTA certificates.  Just make qualifying contacts and submit your logs.
