Summits on the Air (SOTA)

 

I was introduced to SOTA at my local radio club.  If you are into walking, especially enjoying a bit of hill walking, the SOTA programme encourages you to take portable amateur radio gear with you to the hilltop to "activate" it. 

 

 

Other radio amateurs will be keen to make radio contact with you and short wave listeners can participate too, earning points. 

 

SOTA is not a competition but it is nice to be "rewarded" for one's effort.

 

The following pages will illustrate my SOTA activity in my home country and abroad.

 

Reaching the trig pillar at the highest point.  My portable fiberglass mast and wooden end supports for the 40m dipole.


 

 

I have updated my list of Belgian hilltops as some have been withdrawn for SOTA activation due to new information published in the SOTA ARM for Belgium, with effect from 01/10/2011.

 

 


 

 

Amazingly, from some of the Belgian SOTA hills I made HF contacts with hams on other mountain tops:

 

 

PA3FYG Hans in Slovenia.

I was on ON/ON-014 Fagne d'Erria.

PA3FYG Hans in Austria.

I was on ON/ON-021 Plantis de Mesnil.
