World Wide Flora & Fauna Certificate

H 44 VK2FMIA 2015 286 small

It has taken a while to accumulate enough parks to achieve this award, but well worth the effort. It has been awarded for making contact with 44 other Amateur Radio operators working portable from National Parks around Australia. The World Wide Flora & Fauna program is a popular activity for radio operators around the world, something I became involved in a little over 12 months ago.

Although I have not made a contact to any overseas National Parks yet, it is something that I look forward to achieving in the future. The program is very popular in the UK & Europe as has gained popularity here in Australia in the last couple of years. I am a keen park activator as well, having operated a portable station from 27 National Parks so far. The program involves promoting National Parks & the part they play in the environment as well as giving the hobby of Amateur Radio some exposure to the public.

Below are some links to other Blogs from park activators from Australia & around the world, it`s a great way to experience some of the different parts of the world through the eyes of people that enjoy the environment.

    • Thanks John, its a great program & it keeps me interested in Amateur Radio & something to to aim for, just wish there where a few more activators in VK2, its hard to work the VK3`s & 5`s from up here,. I could be activating a couple next weekend, one new park at least. Good luck with the hunt!.

  2. Hi Doug,

    Firstly well done on the 44. I am going to try 15m a lot more often for you guys in the eastern states with Foundation calls.

    Thanks for being a great supporter of the WWFF program.

    Best 73 & ’44’,

    Paul,
    VK5PAS.

    • Thanks to you Paul for getting out there and activating the parks. If it wasn’t for you and all the other guys in VK3 & 5 it would have taken a lot longer to log that many parks. Got to get an upgrade to a standard call so I can work some DX parks, nearly there, just need to organize the exams, a bit difficult to do in my area. Thanks for all your work on the program, catch you soon from a park somewhere soon.
      Cheers, Doug
