World Castle Weekend 2021


World Castle Weekend 2021 will happen between june 11 and june 20. To promote also activities from german castles we will again issue a special-version from the WCW activator award. A minimum of 3 different castle locations in germany needs to be activated with a minimum of 50 contacts each, so altogether 150 contacts (of course more would be fine). The award can be applied by sending a list of the 3 different german castle locations to the log-address. Also the logs needs to be delivered as ADI-file.

German Castle Day 2021

Castle-Day 2021 was a big success.

We had less logs received compared with 2020 however number of contacts was higher. So thanks to all participants for giving us a call and hope to meet you again from various castles at german castle day 2022. All logs were uploaded into the COTA- and also WCA-database. Thanks to Karl DL1JKK for uploading and general organisation, thanks to Uwe for compiling the announced stations.

As next big castle-event the World Castle Weekend will follow from 11. till 20. june. Of course we will try to get as many german activators in this event also.

server-migration

Since 14.february we are hosted on the new WINQSL-server. Information download should work now faster. Thanks to everybody who supported.

COTA-Hunter 2021 – Activator 2021

Also in 2021 we have a yearly COTA-Hunter and COTA-Activator award-class. The logsearch for this award is available on our COTA-logsearch-server. All bands modes are valid. If you want a point for the COTA-activator, minimum 50 contacts needs to be made from that german castle.

According to the generally situation in 2020 also the number of COTA-contacts was going down almost 20% against the year before.

Also the number of activated castles in germany was with 826 exactly 100 lower than 2019.

90% of the contacts were done on shortwave.

Seasons greetings

Merry christmas and a happy new year 2021 for you and your families, most important good health.

server-issues

Some of you have probably detected the server-issues during the past weeks which were based on a problem at the hosting-company. We will move in the near future to a new server. It can be that cotagroup will be in maintenance-mode and no uploads or award applications can be send for one or two days. Only for your info in advance. 73, Manfred DF6EX

Mailing-list cota-activities

As yahoogroups becomes less popular and reduces funtionalities we created a new mailing-list at groups.io auf dem absteigenden Ast ist, wurde eine neue Mailing-Liste bei group.

Cota-activations is for announcements of coming WCA-activities.

Participation is easy, just enter in the right widget your e-mail-adress and push the subscribe-button. You will receive a confirmation-message from groups.io and in the future you are able to announce your coming activations.
