NA-SOTA Weekend - September 8-9

K7ATN's picture

In order to promote SOTA operations in North America, September 8-9 has been
designated NA-SOTA weekend. Activators should make a special effort to be
operational on SOTA summits this weekend. Be sure and post your alerts to and use the opportunity to let others know about our Summits on the Air 'radiosport.'

Some information can be found here: There should be good Summit to Summit posibilities this weekend so consider giving a chance for 'SOTA Activators Only' when you call CQ.  

NA-SOTA Weekend coincides with the ARRL September VHF Contest (begins 1800 UTC Saturday). This would be a good time to know the grid square of your summit (rare grid squares summits will be in demand) and take some easy to carry short antennas. See: for more information.
