Park Radioactive Special Event

For seasoned operators of amateur/ham radio hobbyists who want to try something new, over the weekend of 25th-26th November 2016, operators in Australia have the chance to activate a park.

The opportunity is part of the 2017 VKFF Activation Weekend for the World Wide Flora and Fauna (WWFF) program, with the purpose of ‘drawing attention to the importance of protecting nature, flora and fauna, and to encourage the development of radio skills, especially in portable operations’.

The WWFF program encourages amateur radio operators to operate portable from designated parks and/or protected nature areas around the world, and in turn generate attention for these areas, whilst providing the amateur radio community an interesting and rewarding activity.

24 Locations across Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia will be activated by 14 operators.
