I was delighted to also receive this award for making contacts with radio amateurs in 1000 unique parks.Hunters have had a great time through November and early December because of the increased activity with special park expeditions to Tasmania (VK7) by VK3SRC, VK7XV, VK5PAS and VK5MAZ . These amateurs helped compress the gap between 975 and 1000. Once again thanks to all of the activators and especially the volunteers whom do all of the work behind the scenes to keep the WWFF program going.
I was pleased to gain my certificate for working 975 unique National Parks, Conservation Parks and Fauna and Flora reserves. I express my appreciation of all the activators who go to make up the 975 contacts.
My award for working 950 Park references has just arrived. Chasing the activators in varying band conditions has been fun. Thanks for the contacts activators – and home stations – all appreciated.
I was pleased to participate in this event. I like trees and some wattles, but not all! some have weed status in the Adelaide Hills Thanks to the WWFF Australia Awards Manager, Paul, VK5PAS, for the certificate.
WWFF Hunter certificate for working 944 unique references.
Certificate for working park to park 88 uniques.
My latest morsel: operant conditioning!
I was pleased to get this award. The 75 stations were mainly the result of using VK5PF, but a small number of VK5BjE contacts always ‘snuck’ in.
VKFF Hunter Award 900 My latest VKFF award for working 900 different parks. I am pleased to have reached this milestone, albeit a bit slowly! Thanks to Paul and all the VKFF team.
Congratulations to Gary on achieving the Centurian Award. This award is obtained by making contacts using morse code (CW) with one hundred Straight Key Century Club members. My contribution to Gary’s award was just 100th of the effort he needed to gain the award. On the 23rd of February 2022, I (VK5PF) had a contact with VK2GAZ on the 30 metre band on 10.118 Mhz. I used 100 watts and my report was 5 7 and 9 and I gave Gary the same report. I was really pleased to assist. My SKCC number is 18570. My call-sign is visible on the South Australian (VK5) group. Thanks Gary for the chance to assist.
At long last: The Wireless Institute of Australia DX Century Club award for making contacts with amateurs in 100 countries! I have been an amateur since December 1976 but never had the time to become serious about DX. Radio filled the gaps left over after family, work, music and keeping fit took most of my time. Covid 19 has helped a bit by creating time as we have kept ourselves quarantined. I should also acknowledge Paul, VK5PAS, an avid DXer, who has encouraged me to keep going. The highlights include those made in my comments relating to the ARRL award, but as well I should say that chasing the DXpeditions has been fun.
This award was obtained relying on Logbook of the World confirmations only.
