before you start your hike
THE ACTIVATORS DO
2) POST ALERT
ahead of time gives you the best chance of making the four contacts (QSOs) necessary for you to earn points – so a few days before an alert Post. thus everyone can see early on where you are, when and on what frequency
You can always use Sota Goat iphone App
3) POST SPOT
On the mountaintop and when your equipment is ready for SOTA-QSO then, post a SPOT. This lets the Chasers know when and where (on which frequency) you’ll be on the air. thats it 😉
4) REPORT YOUR QSO
Activators appreciate being SPOTTED because this increases their chances of a successful activation.
Activators and Chasers – pse log-in and report your QSO.
