    Are you aware of the WWFF (World Wide Flora and Fauna)? It entails activating nature parks just like the ARRL's National Parks On The Air program. Lots of parks of the United States already have reference numbers (designators) for the WWFF. I just finished adding all standard state parks of the United States to our program as well.

    Please take a look at my site at http://www.wwff-kff.com.

    The WWFF has developed a cross reference list with NPOTA, so an activator can get credit for both programs!
    Here is the link to list :
    http://wwff-kff.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/NPOTA_WWFF_new_crosslist.pdf
    You can obtain many awards by chasing and activating WWFF reference numbers (parks).

    We're even running a WWFF cluster : http://wwff.co/dx-cluster/

    To spot yourself, go to http://www.dxsummit.fi/ and in the "info" box, please be sure to enter "WWFF KFF-XXXX", replacing the X's with the entity's reference number.

    Please send your WWFF KFF activations logs in .ADIF format to me at:w3aax@outlook.com.

    Very cool, this certainly opens up more possibilities (and some of the sites on both lists count for IOTA as well).

    It's a little off topic but if you are a US citizen or permanent resident and at least 62, for just $10 you can get a lifetime Senior Pass for day use at NPS sites. This includes entry for up to 4 adults per car. It also provides discounts on some NPS-provided services. This is a good deal for older activators!

    Thanks for the comment OM. Also, that's good news about the pass. Unfortunately, I cannot take advantage of that for 21 years =( =). Can't wait to retire though so I can get out there more in the field! =D

    NPS passes are free to any Disabled Veterans with a permanent disability and all active duty military and their spouses. Thank you NPS.

    Roger that. Everyday should be Veteran's Day. I hope everyone is having a nice holiday.

    I am visiting the Assateague area of MD near Ocean City. I will attempt to activate Assateague State Park KFF-1559 (which also counts for NPOTA as SS01) tomorrow about 20:00Z 11/12 after lunch. Hope to see some of you on the air! 73 44 W3AAX

    I was hoping that someone would come along with something like this. I have really enjoyed the NPOTA events more than I can say and was sad to think that they would end this year. Many Kudos!

    Thanks for the support. I have to thank Sean Kutzko and Norm Fusaro for running a more than successful ARRL NPOTA program because it enables programs like ours to get up and running and continue their success.

    Also, this isn't possible without WWFF staff like ON4VT (Danny) getting the word out, and M0YMA (Andrew) doing ALL the tech/databases behind the scenes as well.
