CW Fun Event-12 Results


Date: December 20, 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: 101
Number of registered participants heard by someone: 39
Number of registered participants that submitted data: 32
Number of un-registered participants that submitted data: 1
Total number of participants that submitted data: 33

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.

Well conditions were pretty awful from here. 20m seemed full of just noise, and all
five QSO's were on 10m. I did also work N4OW on 12m. So stations worked over
the two days were.... 20th Dec = N4OW / 10m, 21st Dec = N4OW / 10m, (Also on
12m), N9SE / 10m, AK4NY / 10m and NO8C / 10m.

Lots of fun. I absolutely love the letter groups concept. I wish there was more
participation. 40 meters seemed like it had the most activity. The bands were in
pretty good shape, except for Saturday evening 40 meters sounded really odd.
W3NP said it best, commenting that signals sounded watery.

Equipment used: Ten-Tec Omni VI+, OCF 80M dipole@48', 40M dipole@15'
Keys used: G4ZPY Model 35 pump key and Reeve J-30 telegraph key. (I made a
couple of QSOs with a Vibroplex bug, but I'm still working on mastering it.)

Already looking forward to next time!

Fun event. Although not that many QSOs, I beat my last entry score (I think hi hi).
Rigs IC-7200 and IC-7000, 50 watts to an all-band vertical. Big Kent SK-1 and KT-1
Straight Keys. Many thanks to K2RFP, KB4QQJ, and NT9K for their work in this event.
Look forward to the next event.

I had a little more time than I have had for the last few events. 30 minutes here, an
hour there, etc but no long stretches from Friday night until I had to stop to get
ready for eve church. I really enjoy these events. Band condx were not too bad
overall, but 40 had a lot of watery auroral flutter on some sigs Sat eve.
Gear used: The Elecraft K Line and my tribander and CF Zepp.
Looking towards the next event. Tnx Dick and others who made this possible.

Well there is another Fun Event under the belt. It was lots of fun as always. The FE
is one of my favorite events.
Conditions stated out about as bad as I've seen them recently. Nothing on 20, 40 was
so plagued with QSB and QRN it was useless. Finally moved to 80 the first night and
picked up a few good contacts. Just when it started getting good I had to get ready
for cooker duty. (12 shoulders and half pig) Tending the cooker and guests took a lot
of time and I ran to the rig every chance I got. Towards the end of the event it
really started to get lively. Funny contact was when WK2S and W2KS both answered my
CQ! The only DX managed this time was Bert, F6HKA.
Set up was my K2 at 12 watts to the LnR Quad endfed at 33 feet. Happy Hannuka and
Merry Christmas. Enjoy the holidays and I'll look for the crew in K3Y.

Another great event. I wish I could have devoted more time. Busy holiday preps
kept me away from the shack more than normal. Thanks to all who participated. I
particularly enjoyed the fast past QSOs in the last hour on 20 mtrs.

Once again I used my Greeley Victor Knife Edge straight key, ca. 1885. It has a
great feel and works well at higher speeds

Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukkah to all & family.

Couldn't get to the rig for more than a few minutes until the final hour, so this event turned
into more of a short sprint for me. Those final minutes were busy though; I think I helped to
keep W9DLN, KK0I and N6EV busy... An auto tuner helps a lot in this event, jumping
back and forth from band to band... The QSB was bad on 40; just guessed at some of the
code words that I "spied" on... Suggestion to ops: skip the name and QTH when re-
working the same ops-- just send RST and code group; that's a lot speedier: "UR RST
559 FE XXXXX".
