Summits on the Air (SOTA) is an award scheme for amateur radio operators that encourages portable operation in mountaineous regions throughout the world. The SOTA program has been developed so participation can be enjoyed by all. SOTA is not just for mountaineers! The program encourages chasers to operate from home, mobile or portable stations and there are even provisions in place for un-licensed SWL or short wave listeners.
If you would like to learn more about how to get started chasing or activating in the SOTA program, please listen to episode 50 of the Practical Amateur Radio Podcast. In episode 50 I provide a practical look into how to get started chasing and activating. You can listen to episode 50 via the player below.
