Windham, NH — Dec. 2, 2017 — As we all know, the island of Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Recovery efforts are proceeding but a lot of work remains to be done with a significant period of time to go before things return to normal. Amateur radio has filled a vital need for communications, since the storm destroyed most of the island’s wired and wireless infrastructure.
Effective immediately, the WWROF will match the first $5000 of donations by clubs and individuals to the *KP4 Generator Project*. WWROF is an IRS-recognized 501(c)3 organization and donations are tax-deductible for U.S. taxpayers to the extent allowed by law. Continue reading

The World Wide Radio Operators Foundation (“WWROF”), a non-profit donor-supported organization, is pleased to announce the completion of a major redesign project for the contest web sites that it maintains and operates on behalf of the contest community. These sites include:
The new design is intended to be more responsive for viewing on limited screen size devices such as tablets and smart phones. All sites now offer a historical database of contest results where you can view scoring records and search results by callsign, operator, or geographic region. Online certificates are provided for recent years for all contests.
We hope everyone enjoys the sites and that they enrich your contesting experience. For more information about WWROF, or to make a donation, please visit http://wwrof.org.
HELP WANTED: WWROF is looking for someone with HTML5, PHP, and MySQL programming skills to help with the maintenance and continued improvement of the sites. If you feel that you may be qualified and want to help, please contact Randy, K5ZD, at email@example.com.
