I cannot thank SOTA enough for encouraging my return to amateur radio

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.
