Logsearch Update – May 2017

The first update for May has just been released, featuring a number of new awards:

  • The migration of the Directory Manager
  • Next step in the GxFF awards (level 22)

Directory Manager

I am pleased to announce that I have completed the porting of Directory Manager to be an integral part of the WWFF Logsearch plugin.

For the majority of users, this is an entirely transparent move – however, it now means that the Directory Master is an integral part of THIS site, rather than being managed through the ‘old’ Logsearch site, and periodically sync-ed… this should mean there are fewer delays ion getting changes made to the ‘live’ Directory, and in particular it means only one code-base to be maintained.

My thanks to Danny ON4VT for helping test this.

With this, the ‘old’ Logsearch will now be decommissioned, once an for all 🙂


The expansion of the North American directory continues apace, with the addition of a further 265 State areas, in IL, IN and WI.


Any problems, or new feature requests, via the Help Desk Forum please.

Logsearch support and Log corrections

As (hopefully) the support team increases, we need to clarify the way that support requests are made.

For anyone who can log-in, please use the Forums as follows:

Please DO NOT send email if you can log-in!  If you send an email, only the recipient(s) will receive it, not necessarily the person who will action it!

Missing WWFF activator logs

From time to time some stations are activating WWFF references without sending logs to the WWFF National Coordinator or the WWFF Log manager.
It’s a pity and a big frustration for all WWFF Hunters when the QSOs are not uploaded for award credits.
All National Coordinators and WWFF officials are doing a very big job to collect all logs also from these stations.
So Hunters, if you are missing logs in WWFF LogSearch, please contact the activator station direct and not the National Coordinators and WWFF officials.

There is a FORUM topic created to post your missing logs :

Anyway, some stations refuse submitting their logs for one or another odd reason. But they take benefit of the WWFF reference to run a pile up. The question is if as hunter you have to keep working those stations ?

R2017F Special Event Callsign


2017 is the year of the 100th anniversary of the foundation of the first state reserve. 2017 is declared in Russia as the Ecology Year. The main tasks of the Ecology Year are solutions for the problems to ensure environmental safety and to preserve the unique nature of Russia. Among the many important events and projects it is planned to open 11 new and expand 2 existing protected areas (specially protected natural areas — nature reserves, national parks, etc).

The Outdoor QRP Radio Group arranged a special callsign R2017F (Russia-2017-Field), and will use it for for amateur radio activity from various specially protected natural areas. Some of those areas have RFF-references (“Russian Flora & Fauna” in the RFF and WWFF ham radio award programs).

R2017F will be active from May 1 to July 31, 2017 only from the territory of various specially protected natural areas (RFF-#### according to the RFF and WWFF award programs) using only QRP-power on different bands and different modes in accordance with the Rules of the “Field Flowers” outdoor QRP Marathon.
