Wow, what a weekend that was. The 2016 VKFF Activation Weekend was held last weekend, on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th November, 2016.
There was activator representation from all States and Territories around Australia, except for the Northern Territory (VK8). Early stats suggest there were around 40 different parks activated on Saturday and another 40 or so on Sunday.
My wife Marija VK5FMAZ and I activated 2 parks on Saturday 26th: Poonthie Ruwe Conservation Park VKFF-1082, and Mowantjie Willauwar Conservation Park VKFF-0919. We made a total of 233 QSOs including 74 Park to Park contacts
On Sunday 27th I activated 3 parks: Marne Valley Conservation Park VKFF-0906, Swan Reach Conservation Park VKFF-0832, and Ridley Conservation Park VKFF-0932. I made a total of 191 QSOs including 48 Park to Park contacts.
Thankyou to everyone who called us and thankyou to everyone who took the time to spot us. A number of the parks we had no mobile phone coverage in.
Once all the activators have provided their logs for upload to Logsearch, I will compile some more detailed stats on the weekend.
Thankyou to everyone who took part in the weekend’s VKFF Activation Weekend, both activators and hunters.
