KFF Marathon Challenge 2021

After the astounding success of KFF Marathon Challenge 2020, we are excited to announce it will be repeated in 2021.

Beginning January 1, 2021 KFF again sponsors a KFF Marathon Challenge, a yearlong activity wherein we will recognize the achievers who work, or activate, the most KFF References during the calendar year. There are categories for Top North American Hunters, Top DX Hunters, and Top Activators. The effect of the Marathon Challenge will be that on January 1st, for the sake of the Challenge, everybody’s KFF counter will reset to zero, and all KFF References will be “New” again. This opens a whole new world for Hunters and Activators alike.

Good luck hunting in 2021 when propagation should be much better!

Rules can be found at: https://wwffkff.files.wordpress.com/2020/12/kff-marathon-challenge-rules.pdf

Could all WWFF hunters please ensure that your profile is correct… lots of you have the wrong Continent and/or wrong DXCC shown. This makes the analysis a bit of a pain!

GxFF Operations

The Covid rules across the UK provide a confusing mish-mash of restrictions:

  • On Wednesday 2nd December, the current English national-lockdown comes to an end, being replaced by a three-Tier system, which will last until (at least February).
  • In Wales, new restrictions (which have not yet been finalised) will come into force from Friday, 4 December.
  • Scots now find themselves in Level 4 restrictions, which will remain in place for three weeks.
  • Northern Ireland has entered a new circuit breaker, which will cover the two-week period from November 27 until December 11

Team GxFF have considered the available information and have decided that decisions whether to perform an activity should be left to the judgement of the activator, with due consideration to the rules in force at their home and at the target reference, and in particular with regards any travel restrictions in place.

Team GxFF reiterate that this is not an encouragement to undertake any activity, and accept no liability for any consequences of any decision by an activator to perform an activation.

We will, of course, keep monitoring any changes in the Rules…

Login/Logout problems

Some users have reported that they keep getting “logged out” when accessing Logsearch.

This appears to be linked to those using the Logsearch image link, in the home page gallery – but not for those who use the Logsearch menu link!

After investigation, the (with hindsight, obvious) observation was that the gallery links were still non-HTTPS… so that the (secure) login details were not being shared with the (now non-secure) page.

I have now updated the links, and (hopefully) this problem is no longer apparent.

Note: this was not an issue with Logsearch!
