Croatian protected areas (WWFF references) managed by Public Institution Natura Histrica.

After 6 activated 9AFF references (9AFF-0017, 0030, 0043, 0044, 0045 and 0046) with 1483 QSO’s, Herbert, 9A8GHJ (aka (OE7GHJ) and xyl Eva, OE7EVI, completed amateur radio activities from Croatia in 2017. All  references are natural resources under protection on the territory of Istria County managed by Public Institution Natura Histrica.

Last activity (October 9th, 2017.) were from Special forest reserve Kontija, 9AFF-0044, located in the western part of peninsula of Istria (nort of Special marine reserve Lim channel, 9AFF-0030). During 235 minutes, under 9A8GHJ/p, Herbert and Eva made 232 QSO’s on SSB and FT8 mode. All QSO’s are in 9AFF data base.

We hope Herbert and Eva are satisfied with results and will visit Croatia next year again… maybe to activate some other 9AFF references outside of Istria…

Thanks to Public Institution Natura Histrica for understanding and cooperation.

Good to know:
Special forest reserve Kontija is a special reserve of forest vegetation covering an area of 65 hectares. Its natural phenomenon is the forest of oriental hornbeam, more than 140 years old, scientifically very interesting and valuable, the best preserved surface of such association in Istria. Other trees are the downy oak, oriental hornbeam, flowering ash, Montpelier maple, Turkey oak and juniper tree. A walk in the forest leads us into the magical world of tales and feeling of comfort. Along with the play of light and shadow, the fairies from the tales and legends are brought to life.
