Log search is the base of all awards credits. All national approved logs are uploaded to a central WWFF log search database. This database contains thousands of logs uploaded from different WWFF country member activators (when all logs are uploaded). It is the responsibility of the activator to send the log for approval to the ONFF coordinator. The ONFF coordinator will, after approval, complete the upload.
When entering your call into the search window, your individual WWFF member score will be displayed. The score is displayed based on the different WWFF member award programs.
Top honor levels per continent are displayed. You can chose between Hunter and Activator to display your score.
Logsearch is availlable.
