Calling all activators! I am excited to announce a new joint venture award program with RaDAR. This program was designed by a South African named Eddie Leighton ZS6BNE. Greg Lane N4KGL, a Floridian in the United States, worked with both of us to get this finalized:

RaDAR Rapid Deployment Amateur Radio adds movement to portable operating. These KFF RaDAR Awards recognize the challenge of RaDAR style operating. These will start from this moment forward, so sorry I cannot give these out for old activations.

Warthog: two RADAR transitions at or between KFF entities during a 24 hour period
Rhino: three RADAR transitions at or between KFF entities during a 24 hour period.
Cheetah: five RADAR transitions at or between KFF entities during a 24 hour period.

A RaDAR transition is moving the prescribed distance from your portable deployment after making five or more contacts.

Vehicles, motorcycles and motorboats etc. (Motorized transport) – 6km

Bicycles – 2km

On foot and paddle canoes – 1km

Wheelchairs – 500m

Note your contacts will also apply toward other KFF entity activation awards. I will be using the honor system for these, so if you qualify, please send me an e-mail at w3aax@outlook.com with the information.

 

Good luck! 73 44 W3AAX
