Activity so far in 2017

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.

  1. Good stuff Paul, always a pleasure to make a contact with you, especially if it’s a P2P. Hopefully the weather will clear up here and I can get out there and play radio. Catch you on the air 73.

  2. Hi Mark,

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Unlikely I will be out this weekend as the weather here has been lousy, raining the past 3 days and again over the weekend.

    • G’day John,

      I’d like to do a bit more with SOTA, but as you know it’s a long way to get to summits here in VK5. But I’m having a great time out in the field in the parks with WWFF really exploding in popularity in recent years.


      Paul VK5PAS.
