The CQ WW Contest club competition allows club members to combine their scores from both modes to generate a total score from all members. It is a fun side competition that helps promote more activity in the contest.

There has always been some question about how the club scores were calculated.  Many clubs want to see how their members contributed to the total.

We have added a new club score page to the web site.  Go to https://www.cqww.com/clubscores.htm and select the year.  You will see a list of all clubs listed by score.  Click on the score for any club to see a detailed breakdown of how that score was calculated.

For CQ WW RTTY, go to https://cqwwrtty.com/clubscores.htm

Any club can have their club name and total appear in the results just by following a few simple rules.

A. USA Clubs: Participation is limited to club members residing within a 250-mile radius circle from the center of club area.

B. DX Clubs: Participation is limited to club members residing within EITHER the DXCC country where the club is located OR within a 400 km radius circle from the center of club.

A minimum of four logs must be received for a club to be listed in the results. Checklog entries are not counted for the club score.

For an entry to count for the club, you must enter the club name in the Cabrillo file. We use that information to calculate the club score.

Single operator entrants are only allowed to enter for one club.  Multi-operator entries may have their score split among several clubs based on the number of eligible operators.

Please please please spell out your club name.  Many clubs have the same abbreviation and we don’t always know what club you are supporting.

If a multi-op decides to split the score, they can indicate this in the Cabrillo file.  Here are some examples of how we would like to see the split indicated:

Example 1:

CLUB: 2/3 YANKEE CLIPPER CONTEST CLUB, 1/3 ITALIAN CONTEST CLUB

In this example, the multi-op had 3 operators.  Two were from YCCC and 1 was from ICC.

Example 2:

CLUB: 6/7 POTOMAC VALLEY RADIO CLUB

In this example the multi-op had 7 operators.  Only 6 of the operators were members of PVRC.

By indicating the split on number of ops, it makes it easier for us to confirm what you intended.

The scores in the new club listings may not match what appeared in the original results.  The club scores are derived from the information in the score database. The database may not have the same splits or club names as we had when the results were calculated.  If you think we have made an error, please contact the Contest Director.

Enjoy!

One of the things we do as part of the log checking for CQ WW is download the FCC license data on Sunday evening of the contest. We then use this info to check for QSOs with non-existant callsigns. Steve, N8BJQ, used this data to calculate the license class for USA entrants in the 2018 contests.
