The Fred Fish Memorial Award Fund, maintained by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), is a program that honors and remembers the contributions of Fred Fish, W5FF, to the world of amateur radio. Fred was a pioneer in the field, and his work and dedication helped to shape the VHF amateur radio community that we know today.

To help support the Fred Fish Memorial Award Fund, I am offering a special FFMA Supporter t-shirt for sale. All proceeds from the sale of these t-shirts, minus shipping, will be donated directly to the fund. This is a great way for individuals to show their support for the FFMA community and to help preserve the legacy of Fred Fish.

If you are interested in purchasing an FFMA Supporter t-shirt, please visit my shop to place your order. Your support is greatly appreciated, and I thank you for your contribution to the Fred Fish Memorial Award Fund.

Thank you for your support!

Please contact me for shipping outside the US.

The Fred Fish Memorial Award was created in honor of Fred Fish, W5FF (SK), who is the first amateur to have worked and confirmed all 488 Maidenhead grid squares in the 48 contiguous United States on 6 Meters.

I am the current maintainer of the FFMA Leader Board / Most Needed Grid Data which is a data collection from those chasing grids for FFMA. The intent of the Leader Board is to make data and information available to Rovers/Activators so that they may better sked and plan rare grid activations which benefit FFMA Grid Chasers.

If you are interested in participating in our data collection for the Leader Board and FFMA Most Needed Grids, please email me following these instruction (include your Name and Callsign) and I will create and send you a link to your personal data sheet for tracking your grid data.

I also recommend you sign up for the and the VHF Slack if you want to stay in the loop with the FFMA community and catch grid activations.
