First PAFF awards issued

Effective start of award program

Just one day after launching the PAFF award program on various fora we have sent out the first chaser and the first activator awards. Uwe DL2ND received bronze chaser award number 1 for working 10 PAFF references and not surprisingly Hans PA3FYG received the first PA-Active activator award for activating more than 10 (17) different PAFF references.

Schiermonnikoog does not allow visitors to take their car on the island so you will see PG7V with his bike on his blog:

On his blog he also describes his activities at PAFF-033 and PAFF-012 earlier this year.
