The GYPO Mosquito Madness will be an International event inviting all Activators through the world to participate. Hunters everywhere are invited to search out and contact Activators everywhere, making this truly a worldwide, DX event.

This event will include Get Your Park ON! Mosquito Madness Event Stations (GYPO SES). These stations will be active from KFF parks throughout the weekend operating with 1×1 callsigns, e.g., N5G. Hunters are encouraged to work as many of these Special Event Stations as possible, with special recognition given to those working five or more.

A complete list of the Special Event Stations will be provided at the start of GYPO Mosquito Madness. Their operating plans and schedules will be posted on their individual QRZ pages.

GreenParty 2021

Hi

GreenParty is in its 10th edition. This year 5-6 June. The rules are at: http://wff-yo.blogspot.com/p/blog-page_3.html

I would like to remind you that this activity is open to all those involved in FF activities, both activators and hunters. In recent years, comments have been made that this activity belongs to Europeans. Unfortunately, it seems that it has not been understood that the regulation is made in such a way that any other continent can participate. There are no multipliers that favor one participant or another depending on the continent they are on. Everything is done so that everyone can be satisfied. I invite in this way those from Oceania, North and South America, Asia and Africa to try to be present.

Log Corrections

A reminder that the Log Corrections forum is to request corrections to logs!

Please DO NOT simply request that a log is deleted… please specify what needs correcting.

Once a log has been uploaded, lots of processing goes on behind the scenes (eg calculation of Top Operators, verifying Park-to-Parks, activations stats etc) and deleting a log can cause these to go wrong.

We can correct any mistakes (whether a typo in a callsign or reference, or logging mistakes) and can flag individual or multiple QSOs as invalid… mistakes happen, and we understand that.

The only reason an entire log should need deleting (as opposed to correcting) is if it should never have been uploaded in the first place…

But this should also act as a reminder to Activators to check their logs before submission, and for Log Uploaders to check and validate logs before uploading.
