John Burton from Shropshire has achieved the coveted SOTA Mountain Goat award, for achieving 1000 activator points.
This was attained with an activation of Waun Fach GW/SW-002 in the Brecon Beacons, South Wales, on 20th March 2019. He was accompanied on the expedition by existing SOTA Mountain Goat Allan Jones GW4VPX.
John, like quite a few radio amateurs, spent a number of years inactive in the hobby before being tempted to get back on air because of the SOTA - Summits on the Air scheme. He is an accomplished mountaineer, having completed all the Munros, Nuttalls and Wainwrights.
