I reached the 1850 references worked step of the VKFF Hunter Award (Honour Roll) on 29 June 2021.
There have been a small number of Activators in particular who have been “out and about”.
Gerard VK2IO has been on the road for most of June. Gerard had been activating Parks and some SOTA summits when a COVID lock down in Sydney was announced, so his plans adapted by continuing his trip. He was in the greater Brisbane area when restrictions were announced for Brisbane and some surrounding local government areas. Gerard managed to move to the west and was able to continue his radio activities.
Marty VK4KC had also been out and about, mainly fitting activations around some work-related activities which took him well north of his home area.
Bob VK2BYF and Gerard VK2HBG have been out activating Parks to the south and west of greater Sydney from their homes in the Shoalhaven area.
Rob VK4AAC has been on an extended caravan trip in western and northern Queensland and has activated several Parks which were new Parks for most Hunters.
There have been others able to be out Activating, providing all Hunters with some targets.
On 7 July 2021, I noticed that I had qualified for the next step of the Honour Roll – 1875 references worked.
The latest 25 references came from only 5 Activators:
Marty VK4KC – 16 references
Peter VK3TKK – 5 references
Gerard VK2IO – 2 references
Bob VK2BYF and Rob VK4AAC – one reference each.
As always, thanks to all the Activators and the Hunters, and thanks again to all involved in the VKFF and WWFF administration teams.
