WWFF global award program launched!

WWFF has the pleasure to announce a new global ham radio award program based on the WWFF LogSearch database that is now 9 months in operation.

Initially we will offer two awards - one for hunters, one for activators. 

  • The WWFF hunter award starts at 44 references with upgrade steps of 44 up to 444 and then steps of 100. We have added a "novice" award especially for our new hunters of the WWFF program. 
  • The WWFF activator award starts at 11 references and has upgrade steps of 11 references.

We plan to expand the award program in the future, adding awards for special categories both for hunters and for activators.

The awards will be available in digital format, free of charge and can be requested through the WWFF LogSearch.

On our global award page you can find more detailed information about the awards and the application process.

3 million QSOs in WWFF Logsearch


UX1IM and IQ8CZ/p awarded for reaching this new milestone

At the beginning of this year we started with the development of a new log search platform for WWFF
It went live on February 16, 2013. 
With the effort of a lot of enthusiastic OMs - local coordinators, activators and chasers - we have now collected and made available 3,000,000 valid flora and fauna QSOs.
To celebrate this new milestone Pit YO3JW developed an award for QSO no. 3 ,000,000 in the WWFF database: 
a QSO between Oleg UX1IM and group from ARI Catanzaro IQ8CZ/p (see left).

 

Work to collect historic logs continues parallel to the "normal operation" where validated logs of current operations are uploaded to the WWFF database by the local coordinators. 

If you think a log is still missing or you possess an activity log, please contact your local coordinator (list can be found here).
