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.
