From the political heart of the nation, on Saturday 4 August 2018, VK1 SOTA activators will brave the cold Canberra weather typically minus five degrees (-5) C, ascending local and distant SOTA peaks for a chance to work like minded SOTA folk around VK ZL and JA. The VK1 Winter SOTA QSO Party is a popular three hours event with SOTA chasers and activators alike where SOTA activators compete with chasers to earn valuable Summit to Summit points. On Saturday 4 August 2018, monitor SOTAWatch and Parks n Peaks for activator live spots covering summit location, operating frequency and modes.
