Reading EA2CW's blog and he mentioned DL4MFM's database tools.  So I did search and found this neat collections or online programs that will take snippits of your SOTA log and produce fancy tables with stats and what not.

SOTA Stats

Sweet aye?

Still like to work out how EA2CW made that map thou....


Rain rain go away...

Four days of rain.  Planned to activate a whole bunch of peaks and spend the night on some for some DX.  Didn't work out that way at all.  All up did 1300km and only activated four summits.

1300 km

Instead of spending each night on a summit I fled the rain and crashed at VK2JDS Dave's and VK2XPH Phillipa's each night (thanks guys).

So two summits I had planned and two summits I hadn't planned for.

Made 2500 chaser points today when I worked Mike 2E0YYY/P on 20m @ 07:08z.  Has taken me under six months to get here.

Last nights insanity on 12m helped!  Fifteen 12m summits in one sitting sure pushes my score up.  Which also leaves me close to my goal of being in the top 50 for the 12m Challenge.

And I ammmmm done...

3km Drive for a One Pointer

Just around the corner from home is VK/HU-093 Mt Elliot which I haven't activated yet.  So with the good conditions to EU around sunset I decided to whizz over and get it done.

Had to drop the wife at the station at 4am so I decided to play radio all night.  Only way I was going to catch the NA activators.  Chased NA6MG in the W6 association.  Grabbed him on two different peaks on 12m and 20m  to qualify the association.
