IG GMA - Global Mountain Activity Group

In this group will meet radio amateurs who want to act their hobby together outdoors or want to combine hiking with some nice HAM-radio contacts. But even those HAMs who will perform VHF DX from top of a mountain or even participate in contests. Interested people should be kept on the nature and the amateur radio.

And finally, there are also those radio amateurs who enjoy it to accompany the mountain radio operator by radio and get as many mountain QSOs in the loog book.

To make things even a bit more exciting there is the "Global Mountain Activity", a continuous competition in which you can earn points and certificates and the "Global Mountain Challenge", an annual competition which is equally exciting for for mountain radio operators and home operators.

New: Worldwide are GMA references possible. Plase coordinate with one administrator of GMA the used prefix, so that there is no confusion with other HAM Radio mountain programs.

To take part in the GMA program and challenges it is not necessary to become a member of IG GMA.

GMA - Global Mountain Activity

Brief Information

Mountain radio without if's and buts. Any summit from 100m above sea level can be activated. Germany: all non-SOTA references assign the prefix DA/, SOTA references are of course valid and assign the prefix DM/ and DL/). Outside Germany: all references of all mountains activity programs (i.e. WMA, SOTA, HuMPs Award) are valid for the scheme. There will be points awarded per qualifying summit on the GMA account. On this website the QSOs can be uploaded and compared with results from other HAM-radio operators.

GMC - Global Mountain Challenge

The activities of the GMA can be incorporated into the GMC. The points system is designed differently. Good tactics and taking advantage of bonus points makes the GMC a radio play-ground. At the end of the year the winner will be crowned.

S2S Weekend Activity

S2S = Summit to Summit. Each quarter of the year activity days will be held. This means: Double points per activation and double points for each QSO for chasers.
