SOTA - Summits on the Air

SOTA activity is an outlet for my favorite avocations: photography, orienteering, mountain trekking, and ham radio. I even manage to ride my BMW F-650GS dual-sport motorcycle to some of my activations. Activators put summits on the air for points and chasers work them for points. It's like a new Dxpedition every day! Click here to learn more. Photos from some of my activations are here.
