SOTA - South African perspective

I have been monitoring the summits on the air - SOTA watch site for a while now. Unfortunately it seems the choice of frequencies used by the activators in Europe are not very useful for us here in South Africa.

It is great to see that CW is by far the most popular mode during SOTA activations. Who said CW is obsolete?

According to the VOACAP online site we have a fair chance of working into Europe on 15M and above. Most of the SOTA activity takes place on 40M, followed by 30M.

Are there any South African stations taking part in SOTA? If so, please share your info and experiences with us. Use the comment facility below.
