Logging SOTA contacts for the 14er event
Just a few thoughts about logging your SOTA contacts from the 14er event
The SOTA program maintains a very robust database for keeping track of SOTA contacts, both for "Activators" and "Chasers".
Its all done on the honor system, no QSLs or other confirmations required.
If you operated from a summit you probably worked other summits, which is known as S2S (Summit-to-Summit). There are special awards for S2S contacts.
Most mountaintop stations should submit both an "Activator" log, for stations that worked you AND a "Chaser" log for the other SOTA summits you worked.
The "Chaser" log is set up so that you can indicate S2S contacts.
The system is actually quite robust but might be a bit complex the first time you use it. If you need help, give me a holler.
One last thought: there is a really cool SOTA log editor program (free, runs on Windows) that I've found to be useful for creating and editing SOTA logs.
I've been using it a lot.
