Continental Hunter Awards

 

On 10 September 2015, a new global award was announced by the WWFF team: the OCCFF Award: The “OCEANIC continental hunter award, DXFF[OC]-H (aka OC:CFF-H) now available through LogSearch, for working Oceanic DXCCs and the various VK States and Territiories”. There is a glitch in the database in the early period after release of the award – the submission data forwarded to the Award Manager (Paul VK5PAS) does not correctly identify the correct information. Paul initially rejected my application, but I sent a response email which identified some of the References worked in each state & territory plus other OC references – a list of 10 entities, more than enough for the 7-entity initial award. It took a couple of days (I am sure that Paul was busy vetting applications for the new Award, processing Activator logs and working at his paid job!), but Paul approved my application. Here is the certificate.
