I was delighted to gain this award for 125 unique parks using different frequency bands but just relying on telegraphy, that is, sending and receiving in morse code or CW, in radio language. WWFF Logsearch credits the award to VK5BJE, my primary call, but nearly all the contacts were made using VK5PF, my secondary call. One hundred and twenty five contacts represents about ten per cent of my WWFF activity, presently standing at about 1109 contacts. Thanks to all of the activators and for the morse code enthusiasts.
VKFF Hunter Award, 1075, 18th May 2023
I enjoyed getting this award as well as the 1050 award. I want to thank Gerard, VK2IO/P for his recent activations in VK3 as well as VK2 – by chasing Gerard using SSB and CW I was able to push my hunter total in the right direction. Thanks also to the other activators from all mainland call areas, (including VK7) especially Jeff, VK8DNT.

I was pleased to receive this certificate for working 1,050 unique parks. It has been an interesting journey and it is always rewarding to have a qso with a park operator working from a park I have visited. Thanks to all the activators who made getting these contacts possible.
VKFF Hunter 1000 Parks, 4th December 2022
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.
