Thanks to the many Activators who have been visiting new references, I have achieved another step in the VKFF Hunter Award Honour Roll – 1275 references worked.
Thanks to Paul VK5PAS for his hard work as VKFF coordinator and the certificate. Thanks also to the other VKFF team members.
I have several new references over recent weeks, mainly when I have been out doing activations myself – especially on the days when I have been activating SOTA summits. Such is life.
I always try to work anyone that I can hear activating a Park or SOTA reference. After a bit of work with my Hunter log downloaded from Logsearch, I submitted a claim to Paul for the Boomerang Award – 160 references worked 5 or more times.
As an Activator myself, I know that it can be difficult at times to reach even the VKFF level of 10 contacts when in a Park, so I will always call an Activator if I can hear them. The Boomerang Award is a nice idea to promote Hunters to call even though they already have a Park in their log book.
Thanks again to Paul VK5PAS.
