CW Fun Event-11 Results



Date: November 15, 2014

Event Information


Your score for the event is determined from three counts as follows:

QSOCount 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.
CopyCount This is the number of |CallSign : Word| combinations you have copied correctly. The results analysis program will determine this value based on the "Word String" 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.
SendCount 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 number of correct copies of your data. This value will not exceed the number of QSOs but mis-copies by the person you are in QSO with could be made up by someone else listening in and correctly reporting having heard you. Note that the points you earn for this, and your final score, may change as more data comes in to validate your SendCount points.
BonusPoints 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.

The results analysis program adds the points together to arrive at your final score:

Score = QSOCount + CopyCount + SendCount + BonusPoints

If you are a registered participant, your send points and final score are likely to increase as data comes in from other participants that can verify the "Words" you have sent. So the results are not final until the last processing after the submit window closes.

Stats for this event.

Number of people registered for the event: 71
Number of registered participants heard by someone: 45
Number of registered participants that submitted data: 31
Number of un-registered participants that submitted data: 5
Total number of participants that submitted data: 36

The table below, in alphabetical order by call sign, is for call signs found in the submitted data that have registered for the event.


Station = Call sign of the station someone reported as copied.
Submit = Has this station submitted data?
QSO = The number of QSOs reported reported by this station (? = this station did not submit data).
Heard = How many other stations reported hearing this station send something, correctly or not.
Good = Good Send/Copy reports. (Word copied by someone was found in this station's word list.)

Note that the Heard value includes those that you QSO'ed with and those that heard you while they were acting as an SWL. For this reason the value in the Heard column is likely to be more than the number of QSOs. If it is less it is due to one or more participants you QSO'ed with having not submitting their results.

Ideally the value in the Good column should equal the value in the Heard column. It can not be more but it could be less. If it is less it is because the named station made one or more errors in sending and/or one or more of the other stations made an error in copying or reporting what they copied.

The following call signs have been reported as copied along with a word sent by them but the call is not in the list of registered stations. Although the analysis program can tell who reported these calls, it is left to the participants to check their data to see if they reported any of them. These calls are the result of either bad sending, bad copying, or bad reporting and, of course, there is no way to determine which condition resulted in the data being reported.

Another great even Dick! I found myself rusty in the flow of the event and using the
software. Also, at the beginning I had some really poor signal condx on 40 and tried
to make the QSO, and although I could get the calls, I am not quite so sure about
the groups. I suppose that is part of the challenge - copy in poor condx. But I got
better at it and the condx got better and I started to gain a bit more confidence.
Anyway, this event really makes you pay attention to what someone is sending you
and what you are sending them. I know I will probably not be surprised by the
results, but I always am. I think we had quite a few folks this time, but I'd always
encourage anyone that is a CW fan to take part - it will make them a better operator,
as Dick's program will show you what people on the other end are sending and what
you think you are copying - and sometimes they don't match up - a good lesson.
Thanks to all those folks who played and especially those I had a QSO with - I really
enjoyed it!

Good fun but few QSO's. Need to be able to work N.America for me to get a decent QSO
count. So only managed 8 QSO's. Still - I enjoyed it --- See you all next FE de G0RDO

I wish for more activity and better band conditions but the CW FE objective was reached. I had fun
and really like the word exchange format. I couldn't hear too many of the others but i hope the
bonus station is one of my few contacts. It was nice to make each contact and the spotter/chat
page is very nice to have. After all, misery loves company. I filled some time with a few regular
skcc and w1aw qso so time well spent. I look forward the next one. 73 de Al, kj3q

Quite different from a 'contest' - took some getting used to. Glass fist struck early
and often! Hope to participate in some more events and hopefully get past that. :)

Another fine CW Fun event. Many more participants than the previous one. Thanks
folks for all those who participated and patience on the part of some of those
weaker signal stations. I went between the K4VIZ Cootie Key and the K4VIZ 90
degree horizontal bug. I enjoy them both. Hope to catch you all and hopefully many
more participants at the next CW Fun event. 73 all, jack - KK0I

First off, a big "thank you" to Dick, Randy and Bill for all the work they do to put these fun events
together. I didn't seem to have any vowels in my word lists except sometimes Y ... Hmmmm. I've
been running QRP for quite awhile, mostly with the KX3. This was my first outing with the
KXPA100 amp connected to the KX3. IMHO it makes a great 100 watt radio and it seemed to
perform well for the Fun Event. I had a lot of fun which was what I was supposed to do I think.
Thanks for the QSO's. I'll try to pay attention in the future and not rush in on Saturday morning
trying to get a word list and join in on the fun. Thanks again and WXQYZ!!

73, Jim

Lots of fun, one of my favorites. Conditions up and down here in Wyoming. Sure do
enjoy listening to all the different fists and gives me a great resource to work on my
spacing, trying to match those fists that are easy to copy. Thanks Dick for all the
work behind the scenes and to all the operators .. Danny

It was great to get CWfun-11 under way. I had several hours to play on Saturday and
the bands seemed to be on my side this time. Many new calls and it was great to hear
some of the 4sQRP crowd joining in. I had several contacts that weren't in the event
but wanted my word anyway. I'll see if they show up in the SWL catagory. This is one
of my favorite events and I look forward to CW Fun-12. The Sprintlogger works great
for the event and makes it easy peasy to produce the word string. Three or 4 clicks
and you're done.
Rig was my KX3 to an LnR Quad at 33 feet. Keys were numerous this time. I was also
playing in the W6SFM Bug Round up so I had the 2014 SKCC Club key, Navy Flameproof
and Swedish Military straight keys on line as well as the 1938 Vibroplex Martin Jr
and Wilson RCAF bugs going. Thanks to everyone for playing. I hope to see you all
again in CW Fun-12.

Best Fun Event yet! Great participation. Except for late late night, there was never
a dry spell where at least one FE station could be found. It made taking breaks for
food difficult as I didn't want to miss out! Thank you to all who participated and
made this event so fun. I worked 32 unique calls! Can't wait for FE-12!

SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT HOW THE FUN EVENT LIVES UP TO ITS NAME!

Special thanks to Dick, K2RFP for organizing the event, and Randy, KB4QQJ for
hosting the spot page.

For FE-11, I used an 1882 E.S. Greeley "Victor" knife edge trunnion key on a home
made turn of the century KOB shown in the picture below.

THANKS FOR ANOTHER FUN "FUN EVENT" DICK! I was in and out during the
weekend and had some medical problems, so was able to put a lot of time into the
game. However, I greatly enjoyed the sending and receiving of the fun words - it is a
great way to practice sending beyond the standard exchange stuff. I hope we at
SKCC can advertise the next game more so we can get more players. Looking
forward to the FE 12! In the meantime, 73 -- Larry (SKCC 11165S) in MD

I started Saturday afternoon. Activity was pretty high throughout; maybe the best yet. I
tried to grab a bunch of SWL points while CQing adjacent other stations with filter set
wide open (spying on 'em...). Also stored a lot of stations in VFO memories and kept
cycling through them, keeping quite busy. Got a little bleary toward the end, forgetting
whether I had answered a call or CQ'd it (one time Dan had to remind me to send my
word after I said "TKS 73" after getting his...). Rig: Elecraft K3 at 100 watts; Junker
straight key; indoor cobweb antenna.

I did not get much time to play in this event and in a few times I did the bands were
quiet.

Thanks to all participants. I'll be working on Event-12 for December. Hope to see you
