The World Wide Radio Operators Foundation (WWROF) was created in 2009 by a
group of radio operators who saw a need for an independent organization
devoted to the skill and art of radio operating. We believe that amateur
radio contests provide a means of testing operating skill and
that worldwide contest sponsors can benefit from the support we can
provide. WWROF owns, operates, and maintains the log-processing systems and
awards programs for contests sponsored by CQ magazine and others. For more
