CW Fun Event-13 Results


Date: February 21, 2015
The data submit window is still open for this Event.

Event Information


Your score for the event is determined from five values 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.
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.
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.
CallsCount The CopyCount includes multiple words correctly copied from registered players. The CallsCount counts only the number of UNIQUE callsigns from which you have copied at least one word correctly.
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 + SendCount + CopyCount + CallsCount + 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: 130
Number of registered participants heard by someone: 41
Number of registered participants that submitted data: 33
Number of un-registered participants that submitted data: 0
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.

Nice event. Ran 50 watts from either my IC-7200 andor IC-7000 to a all-band
vertical. I get better with each event. Thanks to all for a great time.

Thanks for another great event, It sure gets fun toward the end with lots of
movement by everyone. I was working a new paddle at first and not doing so well
so went to old reliable navy flameproof then I could relax and just send code. see
you all next time. 73 Danny

Didn't have much time this weekend, but still enjoyed making a few exchanges. I also
managed to make a couple of QSOs while mobile. I really like the idea of exchanging
unique letter groups --I think it makes it much more interesting.

One nice addition for this FE is a 'Vari-Speed' accessory for my Vibroplex bug.
Without it, the slowest it will go is around 22 WPM, so I mostly stuck with the straight
key before I got it.

Wow, thanks everyone. Got a little slow around noon but last two hours made
up for it. Only had to reject three requests during entire event because I had
not worked someone since last QSO. Only made one mistake sending word
with J38. Sorry KA5VZG. Otherwise J38 sent flawlessly. Thanks KRFP and
40 FE Ops for for another wonderful event. Looking forward to FE14. 73, GL...

Another very nice time on the Fun Event. The 10 meter band opened for about an hour
Sunday afternoon where I got quite a few nice contacts. Thanks for keeping FE going.

Unfortunately this event had competition from work, NASCAR and the DX Contest.
I was still able to participate for a few hours here and there. At times even the
traditional 'safe zones' above 100KHz in each band were difficult to navigate with
the DX Contest, digital stations not listening for a busy frequency and other rag
chew converstations eluding the melee lower in the band. Still had fun, and that's
the name of this game. Many thanks for all who participated. Our collective
challenge should be for each of us to bring at least one new player into FE14!

I enjoyed using a very rare post Civil War Reconstruction period Tillotson 'arched'
Camelback made in 1865, still in farm fresh unrestored condition. Amazingly, it has
a great feel and action. Detailed photos on my web page.

73 till next time. Looking forward to a FE14 with fewer distractions. Paul N6EV

Too much fun and not enough time. I've got to get better at scheduling things so
they don't interfere with fun events! Thanks for the contacts and all the funny
words. I'm looking forward to #14 already.

The CW DX Contest did a great imitation of a vacuum cleaner. I participated to make
contacts, mission accomplished. I have been on CW for a week after 30 years away. Had
a great time looking forward to the next. Have you guys considered opening a Facebook
page?

Lots of fun, hope to have more fun next time. Lots of QRM from other contests.

Thanks, Dick, for another great Fun Event! I just wish more folks would join us - its
a great way to practice RELIABILITY in sending/receiving! Would be great if
SKCC 'sponsored' the event - by putting info on web page and announcing it on the
Chat page - to get more participants... just my two cents (ok - inflation: my nickel).
Aloha! Larry

Not as much time available for this one with other activities and snow removal. The
ARRL take over of the bands didn't help either. I had fun and that's whats it's all
about.

I was pleased to hear a lot more stations this time and more activity!! This is my
favorite event and I look forward to it everytime. I didn't get to play as much as i
wanted but what time I had was mucho fun. I think I heard Dick K2RFP work everybody
but me...I was chasing him both days and would just miss him working someone else and
taking off. Next event.....
Thanks to everybody playing and spread the word. It is a fun event and with the
Sprintlogger it's about as easy as it gets to register and play.

73 till Next FE,

I missed most of Saturday but Sunday seemed like quite a bit of FE activity despite the
DX contest squeeze. I think the upper portion of the bands are being discovered by the
contesters though-- guess they spot our activity up there and come up to nab a few QSOs
for themselves... The FE really got rolling at times as stations made the rounds. It's lots of
fun crossing the transmitted groups off your list. Also, copying other stations' traffic...
Snow on the roof didn't seem to bother my attic 'cobweb' antennas on 10 thru 20. Also
used an endfed wire for 40/80. My rig: K3 @ 100 watts. Trusty Junker straight key.
