CQ World Wide DX Contest

Tracking the assisted trend (SSB)

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.

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