My First Summits on the Air (SOTA) Activation!

I finally got around to activating my first summits on the air peak! On 3rd March 2021, myself and Justin VK7TW activated SOTA summit, Collins Cap (VK7/SC-006) for 8 points.

We had a great day and a great highlight was hearing the USA on 15m. Unfortunately no contact was made, but still plenty of contacts across VK.

Interested in SOTA? Have a go! It’s a lot of fun!
