                                                                       W4DOW #1 SOTA Chaser in W4V (Virginia)

                            Welcome to SOTA!

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).

SOTA is now fully operational in many countries across the world. Each country has its own Association which defines the recognised SOTA summits within that Association. Each summit earns the activators and chasers a score which is related to the height of the summit. Certificates are available for various scores, leading to the prestigious "Mountain Goat" and "Shack Sloth" trophies. An Honour Roll for Activators and Chasers is maintained at the SOTA online database

Lived in Richmond VA for 27 years and worked as a Heavy Duty Truck Mechanic. many years with Overnite Trans. Moved back to Southwest Virginia (Washington County) in 1997 to my home place with my Wife of 39 years Darlene (AC4VE) Also EXTRA Class,

Over my 53/54 years in the hobby I have been a Class room instructor and an instructor of Morse Code and Text  for new hams and those wanting to up-grade when we had to have it for a license. The Wife and I are also VE's for ARRL and W5YI giving Amateur Radio Exams in Richmond at the McGuire Veterans Hospital for many years. I have Always be a die-hard CW operator working DX along with Contesting and just plain ole Rag-chewing on CW.

AS of May 2012 I have Retired from the work force as a Mechanic. At the Age of 66 now and with COPD it was time to get out.

I spend more time now with my Hobby that I have been in all my live as MY Father was W4YQW when I was born in 1947 born at home and when the Old Country Dr. spank me on the butt the first thing I heard when I came into this world was my Father Sending "CQ" on 40M CW.?

                                          SO YOU DO SEE FOR ME AMATEUR RADIO IS NOT JUST A HOBBY, ITS A WAY OF LIFE.
