Friday afternoon (11th) I'll be in KPP, (KFF-3632) to camp overnight in one of the astronomy sites they've got there. I plan on operating some early in the afternoon, getting there around 3ish. Not sure on bands yet but at least 20m SSB, maybe some CW too. de NJ4Y

well, it was a success. My new hamstick mount on my truck worked great! It was nice to just roll up, screw the hamstick in, and then sit inside in the air conditioning and operate... I worked around 40 stations or so, from California to Spain, all on 20m. For some reason I couldn't get my 40m one to tune, not sure what was up with that but it was getting dark and time to set up camp so I knocked off. Thanks everyone who worked me!

Hi, welcome to the WWFF-KFF parks program. We encourage people to activate and upload their logs to both POTA and the WWFF-KFF. 

If you plan to discuss KFF parks as well and also upload your activation logs to KFF then this is the place to be. 

You can learn more about the program at our website http://wwff-kff.org. You can also find a link to our Facebook group of chasers there and information on log submission.

Have a great activation and we hope you will participate in the global WWFF program with us.

de KA2LHO.

Have you ever tried using a Bluetooth keyboard with your iPhone/iPad when using HamLog? It might make entry easier/faster. One more thing to carry with you, but they’re light weight, self-contained power… 

I’m about to give WWFF a go and have been thinking about logging too. HamLog with a bluetooth keyboard was going to be my first attempt. Now that I see there’s a WWFF template, that’s all the better!

Re: Logging during activations

I have not. I have read of others who use Hamlog. 

I use a Microsoft Surface GO and Amateur Contact Log by N3FJP. 

If you decide to try ACL, I have a document in the Files section of the KFF Facebook page showing step by step how to configure it for WWFF including your park info and any Park to Park. For Ipad I think Hamlog is the only thing out there.

I have used a Bluetooth keyboard with an ipad in the past for other things. As long as the ipad and keyboard have a good charge to start you should be fine.

Well I don't have an iPhone or iPad, but used to use a small Windoze 'outer for portable logging. 

However these days I keep things very simple and do paper logging in the field. My setup uses only a KX3 and battery so it fits on my lap or on a small table. I have found that at least for me using a touch screen or keyboard in the field is awkward. But then I am an OF!

I transcribe logs to ACL in the comfort of my home or a hotel room.

There's not a WWFF template on HamLog for Android ... I wish there was! As far as I have been able to read up on the subject, the iOS version *will* let you make custom logging templates. I can't justify getting an iOS device *just* for HamLog though. I found details on templates for the iOS version here: https://www.n3vem.com/blog/wwff-logging-more-with-hamlog

Has anyone tried to reach out to N3WG to see about getting custom templates for Android?

I'm reading this post right now:


about the "Create a Log" feature of HamLog, which I'd never noticed before. (I've got the iOS version.) Wow -- it looks like the bee's knees for WWFF!

I can't tell if the current version on Android has the "Create a Log" feature, so please check and let us know if you see it on your Android version of HamLog.

Re: Logging during activations

TIL that the template's name is case-sensitive (!). I downloaded the template file "cal_wwff.csv" and uploaded it to my iPhone... didn't show up in HamLog. But after some reading of the help file, and some head-scratching, I "renamed" the file to "CAL_wwff.csv" and (I kid you not) it showed up on my phone. 

So the "CAL" part of the name must be in all caps... however, the template from N3VEM's web page gets downloaded with a lower-case name. Just make "CAL" be in caps and you're all set.

Computers: never a dull moment!

Attempting to activate 6 Parks this weekend

Detrick Merz
 

6 parks, 2 have never been activated before, the rest have only 50-200 QSOs. KX3, KXPA100, vertical, and doublet (if space permits). Good for CW and SSB (though won't run SSB at night when it might disturb other campers). Happy to QRS, just ask. 80-10m as condx permit. If you're very close to any of these, can do 2m/440 FM, just let me know so we can arrange a sked.

The rough plan, all US/Eastern:

Friday 8pm until Saturday 8am (QRT while sleeping)
KFF-4509, GWNF, Virginia

Saturday 12pm-2pm
KFF-2982 Warrior's Park, Tennessee

Saturday 4pm until Sunday 8am (QRT while sleeping)
KFF-2942 David Crockett's Birthplace, Tennessee

Sunday 11am-1pm (could go a little longer)
KFF-3890 Buzzard's Roost, South Carolina

Sunday 3pm-ish until Monday 9am (QRT while sleeping)
KFF-2167 Black Rock State Park, Georgia, AC power, !!ATNO!!

Monday 3pm-5pm

Re: Attempting to activate 6 Parks this weekend

That worked out pretty well overall. VA to FL is a very, very easy drive when you camp at a few parks along the way. In the past, I moved up from 5W to 15W and it made a big difference. This time, moving up to 100W seemed to make SSB possible, but still don't seem to be able to pull in the pileups like I hear some folks doing. Got some new overall ideas to try out next time.

Full activations (44+ contacts) for 3 parks including one ATNO, 17 contacts at another, and 3 in a park I had activated previously. 171 Qs submitted in total. One park was a bust, no legal access for me, but I know now how to get into it in the future. Sadly, it was another ATNO.

Hart-Miller Island KFF-1578 first activation

Lloyd K3ESE
 

I'm planning a trip to activate Hart-Miller Island, KFF-1578 for the first time, this coming Monday, 8 July. I hope to be QRV around 1530Z, and go until 2000Z.

I'll be on QRP CW, on or near 7044, 10114, and 14044. I should be able to self-spot. This is an ATNO for everyone!
