So far during the year 2017 I have undertaken a total of 55 VKFF activations for the World Wide Flora Fauna (WWFF) program. Of those a total of 36 were also valid for the VK5 National & Conservation Parks Award.
The majority of those parks, a total of forty six (46) were in South Australia, while a further nine (9) parks in Victoria.
I have made a total of 4,089 QSOs during those park activations. That averages out to around 74 QSOs per park activation.
I have also activated a total of seven (7) peaks for the Summits on the Air (SOTA) program, and made a total of 314 QSOs during those activations. I would like to be more active in SOTA, but it is a long drive from home for me to get to summits.
I have also activated one Mill for the Mills on the Air program, where I made a total of 87 contacts.
So under my call of VK5PAS/p I have made a total of 4,490 contacts so far in 2017, whilst out portable during 2017.
I have also had the privilege of operating as VI5WOW and VK5WOW, where I activated a total of nine (9) parks and one (1) mill and made a total of 928 QSOs.
THANKYOU to everyone who has given me a shout so far this year whilst I’ve been out portable.
