The RBN's Most Spotted Stations in CQWWCW

Bob, N6TV has kindly permitted us to post his tabulation of the stations that the RBN spotted most often during the recent CQWW CW contest.  Sorry about the funny shading, but I think it's readable enough.  In each group, the underlined continent is where the spotters were located - for example, the numbers of spots under Africa reflect spots made by RBN volunteers in Africa.  Herewith:

  1. This seems like there is a mistake (Africa/South America?)

  2. Wonder if the compleate table is available somewhere. I am interested in the number of spots on our 8Q7DV operation.

  4. Sure... just go to http://reversebeacon.net.raw_data/ , select the day you want, and download the zipped file. A warning, though - the files are too large for Excel - you will need Microsoft Access to handle so many rows. select the day you want, and download the zipped file.

  5. Jeff, I've added some clarifying language to the description above - in a nutshell, the Africa section refers to spots *by African Skimmers*

  6. Igor - looks like 8Q7DV was spotted ~7400 times. Some other "numbers" from the CQWWCW 11 raw data:

    Unique calls spotted: 30377
    Unique calls spotted more than 10 times: 6392

    Logs submitted so far: 6115

    I think it's safe to assume that most people who worked CQ in the test also sent in their log. That would be a good thing!

  7. BTW - this opens another opportunity for "stuffing" the log. We know some stations might do that. Simply find CQing calls on RBN that haven't submitted their log. They would show up in multiple logs but but won't be cross checked. I guess one would have to wait until the last day before the deadline to minimize the "not in log" penalty. Not to start a discussion on cheating. ;)
