It is so pleasing to see so many amateurs enjoying the World Wide Flora Fauna (WWFF) program here in Australia. The program has been steadily increasing popularity since its inception in Australia in March 2013.
The graph below shows the steady increase in the total number of activations per year. In 2013, a total of 171 VKFF activations were undertaken. This had increased to 1,582 activations in 2018.
The graph below shows the increase in number of QSOs logged by the activators. In 2013, activators logged a total of 4,085 contacts. In 2018, this had increased to 58.505.
The graph below shows the growth in the number of VKFF activators who have taken part since 2013. In our first year, a total of 18 activators took part in the VKFF program. By 2016 this had increased to 86 activators. It fell off slightly in 2017, back down to 74. But by 2018, there had been an increase to 87 activators.
The graph below shows the stats for the Top VKFF Hunter. An award is issued each year to the amateur who logs the most unique VKFF references. In 2013, the Top VKFF Hunter, worked a total of 39 different VKFF references. By 2018 this had increased to 894 VKFF references.
The graph below shows the stats for the Top VKFF Activator. An award is issued each year to the amateur who activates the most unique VKFF references. In 2013, the Top VKFF Activator, activated a total of 25 different VKFF references. By 2018 this had increased to 139 VKFF references.
I would like to thank all hunters and activators who have taken part in the VKFF program since its inception in 2013. I hope that everyone has enjoyed themselves along the way, and I hope to see the popularity of the program increase even more in the coming years.
