  • The activity event will start at 00:01 UTC on August 1st and finish at 23:59 UTC on August 31st.
  • WWFF Activators are invite to aired from as many as possible WWFF areas.
  • A big oppertunity for our hunters to work new WWFF areas and increase there score.
  • We recommend all Activators to use the WWFF Agenda and the WWFF Facebook Group to inform the WWFF Hunter community of their plans.
  • After each activity the Activators have to send in their logs to the log manager responsible for the areas they activated.
  • The deadline for sending in logs to count towards this special event is September 9th.
  • To facilitate the special award processing we ask the activators – especially when using vanity /special event calls or group calls – to make sure the operator field in their logs is populated with their home callsign.
  • The log uploaders then have a week to check and upload the logs. By September 16th we will start generating the awards and ranklists based on the available data in WWFF LogSearch.

Changes to WWFF Awards

Currently:

  • the WWFF Activator award is issued in steps of 11.
  • the WWFF Hunter awards (Hunter, Points and Park to Park) are issued in steps of 100, above 444 references/points.

The Award Manager is issuing approximately 400 awards each month!  After careful consideration, to reduce the Award Manager’s workload, these will be revised as follows:

The WWFF Activator award will be issued in the following steps:

  • Below 440 references, in steps of 11 (unchanged)
  • Between 444 and 862, in steps of 22
  • Above 888, in steps of 44

Note: Only 19 activators have exceeded 444 references…

The WWFF Hunter award, Park-to-Park award and the Points award will be issued in the following steps:

  • Entry level at 10 references worked or points earned (unchanged)
  • Between 44 and 444, in steps of 44 (unchanged)
  • Between 444 and 4444, in steps of 100 (unchanged)
  • Between 4,444 and 8,444, in steps of 200
  • Above 8,444, in steps of 400

Any awards already issued remain valid; any pending awards will be issued if valid.

I trust all Activators and Hunters will support these revisions!

->>-SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT-<<-

Our award manager for WWFF hunter and activator awards DL1JKK has stepped down for personal reasons. First of all we want to thank him for his services to our WWFF community. Thanks Karl!

To continue bringing the award pleasure to all hunters and activators, Hugo CT7AOV has stepped in to take over for now while we are looking to automating this process further. Thanks Hugo!

While Hugo is picking up the work please QRX.

Logsearch and Annual Awards

I’ve just discovered (and have a fix ready for) a feature of Logsearch whereby the Year for annual awards was not being stored correctly.
This meant that award managers may mistake an annual application for an all-time one; it may also mean that duplicate applications may be possible.

This has been patched on the server while a fuller fix will be released shortly – in the meanwhile, take care with annual applications.
