    OE SOTA Day 2020
    OE SOTA Day is a popular annual Summits on the Air event, organised by the Austrian SOTA Association. It traditionally includes lots of summits being activated in OE, both from Austrian hams and visiting amateurs, plus a social meet-up somewhere in the Austrian mountains.

    In 2020, Covid-19 has significantly reduced the possibility of international travel for many, plus a social face-to-face gathering is much more difficult.

    OE SOTA Day will still take place on Saturday 19th September 2020, but without the social meeting. Instead, the event is being widened to the whole European continent, and will be a festival of SOTA activations to mark the end of summer in Europe.

    SOTA associations right across the continent are being encouraged to join in, and get as many activators out on summits as possible. As such, there should be a great many opportunities for S2S (summit-to-summit) QSOs throughout the day.

    It is further hoped that there will be SOTA activity in the Far East & Pacific in the early part of the day, and activations from the Americas into the afternoon and evening. It should be a fantastic festival of SOTA, and hopefully encourage the first-time and occasional activators to be active, as well as the regular participants.

    Obviously, the day should also offer a very good opportunity for chasers to amass a large number of points and unique summits worked!
