Sadly, the weather did not cooperate. But I shall remain QRV, and will announce the next attempt ASAP.

Instead, I returned to KFF-1588 to pick up the contact I needed for a full activation. Thanks to all who worked me!

I've been unable to load Facebook lately, so was not able to update anything there.

hey Jess... I see that Hart-Miller State Park includes Pleasure Island.

"The western shore of the island offers safe mooring, wading and access to a 3,000-foot sandy beach. Hart-Miller Island State Park also includes Hawk Cove and Pleasure Island, which also provide recreational opportunities and camping. The park is well-known for its abundant migrating bird populations."

Pleasure Island is a lot closer than Hart-Miller, maybe kayak close. How to find out if that would fit being inside the boundaries of this state park, for KFF? is it the park, or the specific island?

Lloyd,

Pleasure Island is part of the state park.
It is the state park that you need to operate from, any part of it.

Re: Hart-Miller Island KFF-1578 first activation!!!

Well, my ride came through! I'm there, on 7044 right now...1550z

Some information, please.

W3MJM@...
 

I have just joined the group. While I joined WWF-KFF awhile ago, health has kept me from participating. Now I am ready to go out and enjoy.

In the welcoming note accepting me into the group, the moderator directed that spotting is not permitted on this site. Where does one spot for KFF?

When is KFF most active on the air, if there are periods of higher participation. This is not an obtuse question. I live in a restricted community and virtually all of my radio sport is portable and mobile; I haven't been able to sit at home and scan the ether.

Thank you.

Hi Mike, 

Spotting is Ok on this site but in reality, the majority of people will see your spots in one of several places. The WWFF-KFF Facebook Group, DX Summit, The County Hunter Spot Site (ch.W6RK.com) are idea places to spot and get your activation noticed. If you use FB, please join the WWFF-KFF Facebook group. There are many great people there who can help you out. This is the next best alternative but the audience is less. You will get help here as well if FB is not your thing. Hope this helps. Kraig KA2LHO..

people spot themselves and others in the Facebook group, and here 
and here.

Spotting is certainly permitted on this site as well as DXSumit, DXHeat, the county hunters site. The more exposure the better. No problem.

don't spot here:

I use DXPocket (android app) to spot  or  Spot collector  (windows)   http://www.dxlabsuite.com/spotcollector/




Re: Some information, please.

That's not entirely true. I use HamAlert and I spot through smartwwff.cqgma.net and those spots come through... for most parks. I did this just last month. The trouble lies in the newer parks: there's no good way for the HamAlert developer to know when new parks are added, so his parser can only look for parks that were added before a certain date. That said, most of the parks are in there.

Spot! When you work an activator, spot them. Activators without contacts will lose interest, and each spot results in a small flurry of activity for the activator.

Hunters, is there anything special we can do as ACTIVATORS?

Be loud! If I can’t hear you, I can’t work you. Too many Activators take the easy route and chose antennas that are convenient to use but are compromised inherently. Activators will argue that they have had success with a particular antenna, but like the Old Timer has said, “Everybody is loud, even if it’s just across town.” And I’m generally not across town from the Activators. Same thing goes for power. Use lots of it!
