Summits On The Air is an amateur radio award program. Basically it´s about hiking up the mountain with radio equipment, setting up the station and making connections to other operators on various bands. It can be challenging and is great fun!
There is also the GMA program (Global Mountain Activity) that accepts SOTA logs and lists additional summits with special GMA references. The GMA site provides some more statistics and got a nice mapping feature.
- http://www.sota.org.uk/ - Official main SOTA website and starting point
- http://www.sotamaps.org/ - Map of SOTA summits world wide
- http://sotadata.org.uk/ - Site for logging, statistics and summit lists. Full access requires registration.
- http://www.sotawatch.org/ - Monitor current and upcoming activations
Here is my current version of a SOTA/GMA logbook. It should also be useful for GMA, WWFF and other activations. It holds up to 25 QSOs and provides plenty of space for notes. All important data is noted on top, easily for the operator to find while in QSO with chasers.
