Global AWARDS

The WorldWide Flora & Fauna in Ham Radio program has the privilege to present to our hunter (OM and SWL) and activator community a number of awards.

The award certificates are available in electronic format (.pdf or .jpg) and free of charge. All awards are based on QSO information in the WWFF LogSearch database. We cannot accept other sources (like QSLs, LoTW, eQSL).

Awards can be claimed in three categories:
1. Activators (references, DXCC, continents)
2. Hunters (references, DXCC per continent, continents)
3. SWL hunters (references)

Note that YOFF offers a Global DXFF award for hunters. This award is managed from YOFF and requires a contribution. Available via Logsearch.

For this certificate you need to have as Activator QSO with other Activators in other WWFF references. These activities need to be logged in the WWFF global database (WWFF LogSearch), levels start at 10, going up to 44, 88, etc

 

 

For Activators it is important to fill in this fields in their ADIF logs :

-For your activation log, always:

MY_SIG = WWFF
MY_SIG_INFO = your xxFF-xxx

-If you work someone Park To Park, in addition

SIG = WWFF
SIG_INFO = their xxFF-xxx

This has to match:

· Activator call-sign with Activator-Hunter call-sign

· Activator reference with Activator-Hunter reference

· The two dates

· The two bands

· The two modes

Park to Park explained by VK5PAS : VK5PAS P2P

A big help is the fantastic FLE logging software with special options to log P2P QSO’s directly in ADIF format.
