DX entities submitting CQWW logs by year 1948-2020

The charts below show the number of DXCC entities that submitted logs for each year of the CQ WW DX Contest. The growth is evident as travel increased activity and electronic logs made it easier to submit.

The Covid-19 impact is clear in the steep drop of 50 entities from 2019 to 2020. It gives a good indication of just how many expeditions there are each year!

Tim Shoppa N3QE compiled the following data using the CQ WW online score database and then processed using the Clublog bulk DXCC lookup to do the counts (this excludes the WAE countries that are not part of DXCC).

DXCC entities that submitted logs for CQ WW DX Contest (combined SSB and CW)

Certificates and other changes

We have made some changes to the CQ WW Contest online score reporting to support requests we have received from participants.

Electronic certificates are now available back to 1976. The older certificates have the appropriate signatures for the contest director and CQ magazine editor.

The online score data originally was set to only show 100 scores per page. A new drop down has been added to allow selection of 100, 500, or 10,000 scores per page. We hope this will make it easier for those who want to review more scores just by scrolling down the page.

It is now possible to download the online scores in a tab delimited file. The export includes all information from the database. You can trigger the download through the link at the bottom of the page (“Export selected data as tab delimited file”). The file will contain all entries that meet the filter criteria set at the top of the page. Note, there is currently a limit of 50,000 records for this export. You will need to make multiple filters with separate downloads to overcome this limitation.
