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.
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.
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.
Oh I just creep over the line! Congratulations on creating so much activity.
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.
Best get my act together!
Let us know when you’re next around and we can do a few activations together.
