KFF Marathon Challenge

Beginning January 1, 2020 KFF sponsors a KFF Marathon Challenge, a yearlong activity wherein we will recognize the achievers who work, or activate, the most KFF References during the calendar year. There are categories for Top North American Hunters, Top DX Hunters, and Top Activators. The effect of the Marathon Challenge will be that on January 1st, for the sake of the Challenge, everybody’s KFF counter will reset to zero, and all KFF References will be “New” again. This opens a whole new world for Hunters and Activators alike.

KFF Band Hopper’s Honor Roll

Band Hopper’s Honor Roll award recognizes WWFF Hunters who work 100 or more KFF References on multiple Amateur bands. The purpose of this award is to encourage Activators and Hunters to take full advantage of the spectrum allocated to the Amateur Radio Service to provide a practiced capability to support emergency disaster communications, basic to the charter of our service. It has the side effect of providing the opportunity for more Hunters to make QSOs with a reference by utilizing the diverse propagation offered by different Amateur bands.
