Neil G0WPO - SOTA Mountain Goat

Neil Griffiths G0WPO, from Rochdale in Lancashire, has attained SOTA (Summits on the Air) Mountain Goat status for reaching 1000 activator points.

Neil first became aware of SOTA when hiking over Moel y Gamelin GW/NW-042 in North Wales, and bumping into activation in progress. His first activation was on Cyrn-y-Brain GW/NW-043 in 2015, and Mountain Goat was achieved in the Lake District, on Stony Cove Pike G/LD-018.

Like with many people, SOTA has inspired Neil to brush up on the CW and use that mode in his future activation’s.
