SOTA Goat is the all-in-one summit database and spotting application for participants of the Summits On The Air amateur radio program.

It was designed from the ground up as an invaluable tool for summit activators – as necessary as your transceiver and power supply! SOTA Goat provides all the tools to aid in planning and completing your activation.

Mountain Goats and Shack Sloths alike will appreciate the comprehensive summit database and search features, as well as the ability to view and share summit activations and signal reports over SOTAwatch.

This is a universal app that is available for all devices that support iOS 11+, including iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.


• Every summit in the SOTA database is available offline: search, browse, and view a map
• Download updates to the database to get the latest new associations
• Star your favorite summits for easy access
• Export summits to KML and GPX files for use in other applications or GPS devices


• View, add, and modify spots and alerts from SOTAwatch3
• Enable push notifications to be alerted of every new activation. Granular filtering ensures you only see the alerts you desire


• Reach the summit with an integrated compass that lets you know when you're within the activation zone.

With the help of SOTA Goat, you're on your way to become a Shack Sloth or a Mountain Goat in no time!

Outstanding SOTA App!

This app has been rewritten by the developer to work with SOTAWATCH 3. In addition, some nice new features have been added such as customizable push notifications and a Summit Tracker that reports straight line distance to the summit. I highly recommend this program. Thanks, Rockwell!
