2015 CW Results Errata

Writeup Correction

The writeup for the CQ WW CW 2015 contest incorrectly stated that K3LR had won the USA multi-unlimited category for the previous ten years in a row. It should have said the previous three years in a row. (tnx W3LPL)

Award Corrections

The winner of the ASEAN Multi-Operator Single-Transmitter plaque was shown incorrectly as being E2X. The correct listing is:

ASEAN (XZ HS XW XU 3W 9M 9V V8 YB DU)
YE2A (Oprs.: K7BV, YB2DX, YB1ALL, YB2WBF, YB2TJV, YB2LSR, YE3AA)
Donor:Bob Kupps, N6BK

Due to the scoring corrections for the Overlay categories, the winner of the CLASSIC Overlay category is changed to:

U.S.A. – Classic
Steve London, N2IC/5
Donor: CWops

Classic Overlay Scoring Corrections

There was an error in the scoring for the Classic Overlay category. This error only applied to stations that had more than 24 hours of operation. The overlay multiplier count included QSOs beyond the end of the 24 hours. This made these scores much higher than they should have been.

The error resulted in significant changes among the top scores. John P40W (op W2GD) remains as the champion for Low Power with a score that is also World High. Steve N2IC/5 is the winner of the High Power category.
