Out of 1150 chasers that contacted one of the 28 different PAFF activities over the weekend of April 9 and 10, 250 chasers have achieved award levels bronze, silver or gold.

The top chaser – SP8LEP – managed to make 29 contacts, reaching 22 different activities (plus some extra band/mode QSOs). While the number two on the list – OH1MM – managed to reach the most activities – 24 out of the maximum 28.

On the DX side KD1CT was the (expected?) winner but worth mentioning are Paul and Marija that made it into the top 10 all the way from OC.

PAFF weekend April 9 & 10

, ,

Next weekend PAFF will host a WWFF activity weekend. The same weekend a number of new references will be added to the PAFF program.

The activity runs on Saturday April 9 and Sunday April 10. All QSOs count towards the regular PAFF and WWFF awards but we will make a special award available for chasers of this activity weekend. There will be three levels for the chasers: gold, silver and bronze. We will have a separate category for EU and DX chasers.

Points for these awards can be collected by working a participating activator at a PAFF location (5 points for each new combination) and revisiting that activator on other bands or modes (2 points for each new band or mode). The top 5% in both categories (EU and DX) will receive a gold award. Silver will be offered for scores in the top 5-10% while the top 10-20% will receive a bronze award.

The participants and their plans can be found on the PAFF website (in Dutch): PAFF activity weekend

Weather forecast is not brilliant but we are looking forward to a lot of activity.
