Further to the recent announcement, the WWFF Committee are pleased to confirm the launch of a new award for Activators… the WWFF Activator Points Award.

As previously announced, this will launch on 2020-01-01 00:00:01utc – only QSOs made on or after this time shall be valid for the new award (but, obviously are valid for the other WWFF awards.

Points will be awarded as follows:

  • One point for each 44 QSOs from a reference (up to a maximum of 10 points, for 440 QSOs or above) per calendar year.
  • Five points for each DX Entity where a reference has been sucessfully activated from, per calendar year.

Certificates will be issued for 11, 22, 44 and 88 points… higher levels will be determined in due course. Thanks to Francois ON5SWA for taking on the role of Award Manger.

Logsearch is already configured to report the points running total… applications will be enabled shortly…

Database Tidy-Up – Broken Callsigns

I’m trying to tidy up the QSO database, and trapping broken callsigns. I’ve fixed many, with obvious errors – eg 0/1 instead of O/I but some are not so obvious…
If you wish to claim any of the following QSOs, please post to the Forum with details…

Activity Stats – Aug 2020

For interest, the following activity (grouped by Programme) took place during August 2020, and have been uploaded to Logsearch. To add a little competitiveness, it is sorted by Average Number of QSOs per Activation.
Having said and done that, a special shout out to KFF, whose KFF Marathon has certainly got the activators out!

6th Serbian Flora&Fauna Open Day in memoriam of Goran Savić YT2A

On September 26. 2020. is 8 years from leaving us our dear friend and great Op. pilot Goran Savic YT2A. Everyone who knew him, know that Goran was a big fan and one of the first activators of Flora&Fauna in Serbia. YUFF Team chose the date below, of his death for day of Serbian Flora & Fauna activation.

We are calling you on Saturday 26.09.2020. from 00:00 – 23:59 UTC take participation.

Server Migration Update

SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

The migration to the new server is complete.

There will, undoubtedly, be some teething issues, but please bear with us – for example, some links are not working (yet).

Once the DNS has fully propogated, we will be adding SSL encryption for an even more secure site.

Great example

of attitude for specially protected natural areas demonstrates the RO3M team, which will be active since 10 UTC of August 28 until 12 UTC of August 30 from the Levashovsky zakaznik  (natural reserve), RFF-0994 (ATNO!) on 160–10 m and 2 m CW and SSB.

Transceivers FT-950, IC-746, FT-991 and Flex 6200, an ACOM-1000 power amplifier will be used, antennas Inverted Vee for 160–80–40–30 M bands and Spiderbeam for 20–17–15–12–10 M bands will be deployed.

QSOs with RO3M/p during this period are also valid for:
– RRNA: Knyaginya river R-46-0090;
– RAFA: Levashovo airfield HA2Q;
– RDA: Nekrasovsky district YR-20.

A free commemorative mini-pennant will be mailed free of charge for 5 QSOs with RO3M/p (QSOs on different bands or different modes). Send your GCR and mailing address to rv3mp (at) mail.ru

But what is the “great example”? Great example is in the fact that the RO3M team will clean from garbage area within a radius of 500 m from its location, for which they are prepared 100 garbage bags.
