A new program, a new website.
In November 2012 a new program was launched in the world of ham radio:
WWFF - WorldWide Flora and Fauna.
The program builds on strong flora and fauna ham radio programs in several countries all over
the planet. The countries that participate can be found here.
VEFF encourages all amateur radio activity from national parks, provincial parks, marine parks,
landscapes and protected areas (including UNESCO and RAMSAR sites) within Canada, not
only for the "activator" but for the "hunter" as well. This is ideal for the outdoor enthusiast,
hikers, backpackers, SOTA activators, and all those who enjoy operating a portable station
from a scenic location away from home. Join the fun and become an active participant in the
The VEFF website remains under construction and will continue to grow over time.
