Ham Radio SOTA vs 11M & PMR SOTA

Similarities and differences between programs

Article en Français : Cliquer ICI

01 - Prominence (Ham Radio) VS Pedestrian elevation (Free bands)

Link to the 11M & PMR SOTA France : Click HERE

With 11M & PMR SOTA program, we have the possibility of referencing SOTA non-listed on Ham Radio lists, provided that they are summits (no canyons), that they are climbed on foot and that the difference of level in altitude between the starting point and the finish of the hike is at least equal to + 150m.

We use the Ham Radio references which represents an excellent base, but we do not take into consideration the prominence (difference in level between the closest pass and the summit).

Article about prominence: Click HERE

The reason for our position is simple, on the Ham Radio side, a summit which is 4000m above sea level may not be referenced, if there is a nearby pass, within 150m of elevation... As a result, many "real peaks" do not appear in the lists of SOTA Ham Radio...

02 - SOTA points (Ham Radio) VS 11M & PMR SOTA points (Free bands)

Ham Radio system of point is not universal but local (for each country).
Therefore a 2500m peak in France is worth 10 points while a 1000m peak in the Czech Republic is worth 10 points ...

Example OK/JC-120 :
Example F/PE-077 :

11M & PMR SOTA points are different than Ham Radio program, our calculation is based on the highest peak on the planet (Everest (8848m) count 100 points) 100 : 8848 = 0,0113019891500904‬

You just have to multiplicate altitude (in meters) per 0,0113019891500904 + rounded up or down, to get the number of points.

For example, for a 514m summit : 514 X 0,0113019891500904 = 5,8 pts  rounded up = 6 points

03 - SOTA proof (Ham Radio) VS 11M & PMR SOTA proof (Free bands)

The Ham Radio program does not ask for proof of activation.
The 11M & PMR SOTA program requires proof of activation.

11M & PMR SOTA ask that SOTAïsts justify the place of activation, show that the difference of level was done on foot (photos, videos, live-streams ...).
It is possible to share this infos using our Facebook group (dedicated page), it is possible to use YouTube, Vimeo... Photo hosts....
Then simply send your links (articles (blog(s), site(s)), photo albums or videos) on this forum (open to all groups), or via
