Today I received the Mountain Hunter Award certificate for chasing summits in 5 different SOTA associations. Although I have tried many times to chase associations in countries other than Australia, this award is a result of chasing at least 2 summits in each of 5 Australian (VK) associations.
I started SOTA chasing on 28 September 2012 where the first chase was Peter VK3ZPF on South Hells Gate VK3/VT-059 in Gippsland, Victoria. In the last 12 months I have chased 87 different activators on 198 unique summits.
The Mountain Hunter award date 15 September 2013 is attributed to the contact with Glenn VK4FSCC on Mt Mary Smokes VK4/SE-041 in South-East Queensland.
