CQ World Wide DX Contest

Jan 1

Last week, we looked at SSB High Power, SOAB.  This time we do the same, but for SOAB Low Power.

The two tables below show all continental data for SOAB Low Power.

The graphic below shows only AS, EU, and NA because of the higher volume of entrants.

The trend is similar to what was found for High Power.

Next time, we’ll look at CW.

Please note the scale for the Y axis (above).

The CQWW Contest committee is busy working on the 2016 logs.

While that is going on, we thought it would be interesting to look at the trend in the single-op, all band, high power category.  Some tell us that this is where the “real” competition is.

This study is limited to Europe and North American, because those two continents represent the majority of entrants.  Please see the table below, which tracks the percent of entrants, by continent, who claimed Assisted.

Year EUR NA
2010 43% 46%
2011 44% 47%
2012 52% 52%
2013 49% 57%
2014 56% 60%
2015 57% 62%
2016 57% 65%

CQ WW SSB Single Operator Assisted Entries

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.

Doug KR2Q created the following data from the 2015 CQ WW CW Logs for top Multi-Single stations. The table shows how many QSOs were made by the multiplier station during each hour of the contest. In the CQ WW Multi-Single category, the multiplier station is only permitted to work new multipliers.  It is quite busy in the first day, but becomes much more difficult on the second day.
