Summits on the Air (SOTA) is an award scheme for radio amateurs and shortwave listeners
that encourages portable operation in mountainous areas. SOTA has been carefully
designed to make participation possible for everyone - this is not just for mountaineers!
There are awards for activators (those who ascend to the summits) and chasers (who
either operate from home, a local hilltop or are even Activators on other summits).
NORTH AMERICAN CUSTOMERS
We are now holding stocks of Badges and Stickers in the USA so these can be despatched
at local postal rates. Buy through this site but without the high cost of International
postage (for small quantities). Alternatively, These items can travel post free with
trophies or larger merchandise items if you wish.
Of course we participate in SOTA for fun, but it is always nice when our efforts
are recognised. What better way to record an activator, chaser or SWL milestone than
a SOTA award?
We offer a range of merchandise branded with the SOTA logo. Sale of these items goes
a long way towards paying for the costs of running the database and SOTAwatch but
hopefully you will find our produce useful, hard wearing and fun
