The GSRC-SSFG, Swiss Castles Amateurs Group, together with the WWFF (WorldWide Flora Fauna, ) have established the HBFF , Swiss and Liechtenstein Natural Parks Award, that may be issued to YL, OM and SWL. To achieve the award the applicant should provide evidence to have activated at least 5 different parks, or to have had a complete QSO with, (or heard if SWL), at least 10 different parks among the valid HBFF References .

The HBFF rules complete the international rules of WWFF for the Swiss and Liechtenstein parks. In case of conflict, the WWFF rules, English version, will prevail.

Bands and Modes: QSO can be done on all assigned amateur bands and allowed modes.

Validity: Only the contacts with amateur stations operating from inside the parks acknowledged by HBFF in Switzerland and Liechtenstein and identified as HBFF-nnn are valid.
