New VKFF Worked All Australia certificate

Other than the recent VKFF DX Hunter award, I have also introduced the following VKFF award…..

VKFF Worked All Australia.

The certificate is issued to amateurs around the world who make contact with VKFF areas in all Australian States and Territories.

There will also be an equivalent VKFF Activated All Australia certificate on offer.

Worked All Australia example

The qualifying Australian States and Territories and the minimum number of contacts required by VK operators are as follows…..

  • VK0 (Australian Antarctica, Heard Island, MacQuarie Island) – 2 VKFF areas
  • VK1 (Australian Capital Territory) – 1 VKFF area 
  • VK2 (New South Wales) – 5 VKFF areas
  • VK3 (Victoria) – 5 VKFF areas
  • VK4 (Queensland) – 5 VKFF areas
  • VK5 (South Australia) – 5 VKFF areas
  • VK6 (Western Australia) – 5 VKFF areas
  • VK7 (Tasmania) – 5 VKFF areas
  • VK8 (Northern territory) – 3 VKFF areas
  • VK9 (Christmas Island, Cocos Keeling Islands (includes Pulu Keeling National Park), Rowley Shoals, Lord Howe Island, Willis Islands, Mellish Reef, Norfolk Island) – 2 VKFF areas

That equates to a total of 37 different VKFF areas.  Hard, some of you are saying?  Well maybe not.  Check out the WWFF LogSearch facility and you might be surprised whose log is uploaded there.  I have been chasing down a lot of the DX petitions that have activated VK0 & VK9 locations over the years, and there are many logs recorded there.  So you may be closer than you think.

 

The qualifying Australian States and territories and the minimum number of contacts required by overseas operators are as follows…..

  • VK0 (Australian Antarctica, Heard Island, MacQuarie Island) – 1 VKFF area.
  • VK1 (Australian Capital Territory) – 1 VKFF area 
  • VK2 (New South Wales) – 2 VKFF areas
  • VK3 (Victoria) – 2 VKFF areas
  • VK4 (Queensland) – 2 VKFF areas
  • VK5 (South Australia) – 2 VKFF areas
  • VK6 (Western Australia) – 2 VKFF areas 
  • VK7 (Tasmania) – 2 VKFF areas
  • VK8 (Northern territory) – 1 VKFF area
  • VK9 (Christmas Island, Cocos Keeling Island, Lord Howe Island, Willis Islands, Mellish Reef, Norfolk Island) – 1 VKFF area

That is 16 different VKFF references for the overseas operators.

New WWFF global award now available.

The World Wide Flora Fauna program (WWFF) are pleased to announce a new WWFF award aimed at activators working from different DXCC entities.  It is the DXFF Activator Award.

The certificates have been designed by Pit YO3JW and has been coded into the WWFF LogSearch award application module by Andrew 2E0GFF.

The certificates are issued in increments of 3.  In other words, activate a WWFF reference area in 3 DXCC entities, 6 DXCC entities, 9 DXCC entities, etc.

There are a number of other new WWFF global award certificates under development for both Activators and Hunters.

Keep updated via the WWFF global website at…..

These new awards will be on top of the WWFF global award certificates already issued, namely the WWFF Activator and WWFF Hunter certificates.

Remember, that these awards are issued by the WWFF global Committee.  They are separate to the National awards on offer by many participating countries in the WWFF program, which includes Australia (VKFF).
