This is the number of stations you have contacted and exchanged data with. You,
and the other person do not have to be a registered participant so exchanging
words either way is not required for this count. Make sure you have not included
in this count any QSOs for which you were just acting as an SWL.
You have to be a registered participant to know what to send and possibly get
SendCount points. The person you are sending to, or an SWL copying you, must also
submit results data and name you and the word they copied from you. The results
analysis program will determine your total points for this based on the copy data
that has been submitted for the event. Note that the points you earn for this, and
your final score, may change as more data comes in to validate your SendCount points.
This is the number of |CallSign : Word| combinations you have copied correctly.
The results analysis program will determine this value based on the "WordString"
you submit. See below. You do not have to be a registered participant to earn
CopyCount points. Further, you can act as an SWL and include data you copied
that was being sent to someone else and not to you at all.
Although the CopyCount can include multiple words correctly copied from a single
registered players, the CallsCount counts only the number of UNIQUE callsigns
from which you have copied at least one word correctly. So it might help to surf
around looking for new callsigns rather than staying put on one frequency.
After the submit window closes one of the call signs will be picked at random
from the list of calls that submitted results (excluding SWLs) to be the designated
"BONUS STATION". The results analysis program will search the calls in the "WordString"
you submit for a match to the BONUS STATION call sign. If found, you will get a
one-time bonus of 25 points. The BONUS STATION will also get the one-time
bonus. So the more DIFFERENT stations you work, the greater are your chances of
winning the bonus points.
