Since I haven't seen a reply to your question, here's the applicable rule:
1.14 All entrants, regardless of category, are permitted to use spotting assistance or nets including but not limited to DX-alerting nets, internet chat rooms, APRS and other packet, reverse beacon networks and repeaters to identify stations available for contacts and to announce (self-spot) their availability for contacts. Announcements shall be limited to call sign, location, band or frequency, mode and–if applicable–transmitting sequence and listening direction. These methods of spotting assistance may also be used to coordinate antenna peaking prior to initiation of the contact and to explain contest rules, such as the exchange required, for those who need clarification. Such assistance may not be used to facilitate the completion of any contact once the contact has commenced. This means such assistance may not be used to convey receipt or non-receipt of any required element of a contact or to request a repeat of any required element of a contact.

Hi Tim and Marty
Thanks for the feedback.
I think I read this but I’ll ask here; can we self spot in this contest?
If yes, is www.dxsummit.fi as good as anywhere or alternatively what do you recommend as a spotting site?

> I plan on hiking up to Throop Peak (9,100 ft) in the San Gabriel mountains. It has great visibility west, north and south. I’ll be on HF first as its a SOTA peak and then from 11am until the batteries die on 2m etc.
> I’m planning on lugging my 857D and as many batteries as I can hike in and a 2m HO loop.
> Questions for this experienced group;
> 1) What level of 2m FT8 activity should I expect in this event (none, some, lots?)
> 2) Is 222, 440 and 900 and 1296 on FM via a handheld of any value?
