Welcome to the Summits on the Air or SOTA W3 Association Website.  SOTA originated in the UK, but is spreading all over the globe.  The SOTA W3 Association encompasses the entire US Third-Call Area. This area includes the States of Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania. The State of Delaware has no peaks that qualify as SOTA Summits. 

Please remember that SOTA is not just for activators. SOTA has a very nice "Chaser and SWL Award Program" for all those who don't hike!  For information about this exciting program, please click on any of the links.  The SOTA W3 Association has 220 summits in the states of Maryland and Pennsylvania.  SOTA participants now have 206 summits in Pennsylvania and 14 summits in Maryland to enjoy! 

If you love the outdoors or just love to chase the activators climbing the summits, try participating in SOTA. 
Congrats to Eric, KB3UYT
SOTA W3 Mountain Lion Number 1!
