Summits on the Air (SOTA)is a worldwide radiosport program for ham radio and SWL folks to either "activate" qualifying summits/peaks or for "chasers" to make contact with those activators. SOTA is a program that started in England and encourages licensed radio amateurs who enjoy hiking and the great outdoors to take their radios with them and operate from the mountain tops. An award scheme recognizes those who activate the summits, those that make QSOs with the activators and Short Wave Listeners. Participants can be anywhere in the world.
