SOTA activator all at sea!
Tom Read M1EYP, a prominent SOTA - Summits on the Air activator from Macclesfield, Cheshire, is suddenly experiencing a significant change to his portable operating habits.

Tom, who with 3551 summit activations to his name over 19 years, is the world’s most experienced SOTA activator, has commenced work as a professional musician on board Saga’s brand new cruise ship Spirit of Adventure.

Tom has taken his trusty FT-817 and an Alexloop antenna, and has secured the enthusiastic permission of the Master of the Vessel, Captain Kim Tanner. Tom will operate from his cabin balcony, but Captain Tanner has urged him to also operate from the public decks, believing the activity to be something that would be of great interest to the guests.

Tom’s SOTA activities will now obviously be restricted to chasing, but look out for M1EYP/MM, possibly with the addition of some CEPT prefixes, from this brand new luxury boutique cruise ship.

The itineraries include around Britain and Ireland, the Baltic, Mediterranean, Adriatic and Canaries. Tom will be active from the Saga Spirit of Adventure until mid November 2021 on 40m to 10m, and using CW, SSB and FT4/FT8. There may be some local 2m FM as well
