SOTA (Summits on the Air) is pleased to report another long-time participant reaching the coveted Mountain Goat award.  

Richard Price GW0VMW from Colwyn Bay, North Wales has been enjoying amateur radio from the hill and mountains since April 2004, and achieved Mountain Goat status from the summit of Moel Siabod GW/NW-010, 872m ASL, on 6th January 2013.

There are new awards to work towards for the most active SOTA participants.  The Summit-to-Summit Award recognises those QSOs that take place between activators, simultaneously on different summits. 
The "SOTA Complete" award rewards those individuals who have managed to both activate, and chase the same summit. 

Please see the SOTA websites for more information.
