2019 World Ranger Day

Yesterday (Wednesday 31st July 2019) was World Ranger Day which commemorates Rangers killed or injured in the line of duty and celebrates the critical work Rangers do to protect the world’s natural and cultural treasures.  World Ranger Day is observed annually on the 31st of July.

The VKFF program has a special activator certificate on offer for any amateur who activated a VKFF reference on World Ranger Day.

    • Hi John,

      15 certificates issued so far. It certainly was a popular day. The VKFF program will be holding similar days in the future.

      Thanks for taking part.

      73 and ’44’,

      Paul VK5PAS.

  1. A great effort from all those involved. I actually had the day off and despite chasing a number of the activators around the bands I only managed two contacts from my QTH.


    • Hi Chris,

      It was certainly a very popular day. We have another special VKFF event coming up for National Wattle Day on 1st September. Marija and I will be over in Canada so we will be unable to take part.


      Paul VK5PAS.
