Jul 7

There is often a lot of discussion about the top scores in the CQ WW Contest.  You know, the ones that operate 40+ hours. But, how many of those are there? The tables below include all entrants in the SOAB categories (Assisted, Unassisted, HP, LP, QRP), for 2015.

On SSB, ~90% operate less than 30 hours.
On CW, ~90% operate less than 35 hours.

How to read Operating Hours:
“10” = 10 or less hours
“20” = 20 or less hours, but more than 10.
“48” = 48 or less hours, but more than 47.
