Many who read my blog posts and have listened to episode 50 of the Practical Amateur Radio Podcast know my involvement with SOTA or Summits On The Air. While I’ve been concentrating on getting my new basement ham shack, podcast studio, home office and just general man-cave finished…I’ve also been helping in a small way spin up a new website for the WØ SOTA organization.
Our official press release which we’ve posted to many of the SOTA reflectors and websites is below. If you live in the WØ region or plan to visit someday, please bookmark the WØ-SOTA.org website.
On behalf of Steve, Matt and Bob. If we can help introduce you to the exciting and addictive world of Summits on the Air, please contact us.
Until next time…
