The story of a great QSO between DL4FO/p Chris and VK4FW Bill

Dear Bill,

Thanks for listening to my weak WWFF-signal on 20m today and answering my call.

You really made my day!! I was on a hiking trip and called from a wooden tower on a summit near Frankfurt (not a SOTA reference but within DLFF-0068).

Since it was getting cold and my wife waited with two dogs down at the tower, I only took out the little MFJ-1820T telescopic antenna, which is abt. 1.5 m long (see picture).

Our new WWFF Deputy Chairperson

W3AAX – Jason Johnston

Jason was an extremely active hunter and activator in the National Parks on the Air program. Not wanting to see the fun stop since the National Parks Service’s centennial was over after 2016, he decided to work with the WWFF and set up a website and system to support their program enlisting more national parks, state parks, and wildlife refuges in the United States and other various territories.

 He admires someone like Theodore Roosevelt who could build relationships with people like John Muir and had a respect of the land and conservation, while still being a conservative. WWFF is the perfect vehicle to get the word out that we need to preserve these places.

 As the North American coordinator, his next goals are to expand the WWFF into Canada, Mexico, Central America. Also, he plans to activate every possible entity in his home state of Maryland.
