GreenParty 2016 siglaFebruary, still wintertime. June and summer seems to be far away but time passes quickly.
It is time to think about the GreenParty 2016.
The goal is that the GreenParty becomes a traditional meeting, all  WWFF Country Divisions are invited to add this event to the calendar year.

For the rules check  GREENPARTY 2016. New is that now you can make QSOs valid for the new P2P certificate (park to park).
But the WWFF award program contains of course numerous other diplomas.
It is also the goal to be in the middle of nature in one of the longest days in the northern hemisphere. You can start in daylight very early and making a long day until sunset. Those wishing to stay overnight can do it depending by local various accommodation possibilities and can activate also on Sunday.
We are ready to receive any proposal to contribute.
We’re recommending to use the new GreenParty logos for all activities  on June 4, 2016.
Good luck
YOFF team

FLE WWFF logging for Activators

Tags

,

Fast Log Entry (FLE) is a text editor to enter QSO data as easy and fast as possible without redundancy. FLE consists of two main panels – a text editor with customizable context-sensitive highlighting and a QSO data grid. The grid shows the completed QSO records, they can be saved as ADIF file (ADIF = Amateur Data Interchange Format).

From version FLE 2.4 on WWFF logging option for Activators is added. It logs all necessary data needed for WWFF LogSearch uploading (but also nothing more). Also the Park to Park data is added. Super fast logging guaranteed !

The exported ADIF file is custom ready to upload to LogSearch.

FLE runs on every computer under all Windows versions.

Download your version here : FLE WWFF-logger

Be sure to read the DOCUMENTATION FILE (and the WWFF section) before starting !

FLE is freeware made by DF3CB Bernd. He’s also the author of the excellent BV Label software for printing your QSL labels !

WWFF is proud to present the new National Coordinator for the USA KFF : W3AAX, Jason

W3AAX

Jason is a dedicated SOTA and NPOTA activator and chaser. WWFF is pretty sure he will do his very best to promote and expand WWFF in the USA.

Jason is also the coordinator for KL, KH6 and the overseas USA DXCC (KHx and KPx)

Good luck Jason !

Calling all WWFF Residents

As a program, we are fortunate that a number of our Hunters are WWFF Residents, living (at least part of the year) within a designated protected territory.

Many of these residents “give away” their reference when working activators… unfortunately, many of them do not then submit their logs!

Now that the Park-To-Park Award is live, it is more relevant than ever (especially for the other activator!) that you submit your logs for uploading to Logsearch, so that the P2P QSO can be confirmed.

If you need any assistance in this, please post to the WWFF Forum and we will be pleased to help.
