Open letter to our fellow chasers

Dear SOTA chasers,

These last times, I am more and more concerned about some bad habits which have been spreading amongst some SOTA chasers. Perhaps the example given by a few but active and renowed chasers -whose behavior is far from being the best- has something to do with it. For the activators can be a very hard situation to be in front of a bunch of shouting people after making the effort of climbing to the summit -sometimes after hours of driving-, mount the station, and stay up there operating on cold, hot, wind, rain or snow. 

So, I finally decided to share these very simple advices to make our lives easier, and to allow your fellow chasers achieving the QSO too. Please remember that SOTA is only a competitive issue for a few, whose only interest is fame and prestige, no matter the cost.
