RSGB Director's SOTA challenge

| September 29, 2023

RSGB Board Director Ben Lloyd, GW4BML has taken on the challenge of activating 10 summits during 12 days on the remote Scottish islands

He will climb some with his partner and fellow radio amateur Martha, and their two-year-old daughter Lyra.

This Summits on the Air (SOTA) challenge combines Ben’s favourite hobbies of amateur radio and hiking, but it also sometimes brings with it adverse weather conditions and the need to reach remote islands by kayak!

Ben is hoping that by sharing his challenge he will not only inspire radio amateurs to try SOTA, but he will also encourage people who love walking and hiking to try amateur radio.

You can catch up with his adventures on the RSGB social media channels and through the special playlist of videos on the RSGB YouTube channel.
