CW Fun Event-16 Results


Date: September 19, 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: 65
Number of registered participants heard by someone: 35
Number of registered participants that submitted data: 27
Number of un-registered participants that submitted data: 1
Total number of participants that submitted data: 28

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 either in a QSO or by someone as SWL 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.

Likely explanations include or or more of the following: bad sending, bad copying, or something in the first five character positions of the logger's Comment field that was taken as a "word" copied. Whatever the case may be, the person reporting it does not lose point because of having done so.

Well, the bands were pretty stinky all weekend. On Friday night, 40 m DX was easier
than hearing FE participants. Thanks to all, especially those that hung with me to
finish some difficult exchanges. 73, and see you next time.

As always Dick, a fun event. Bands weren't very cooperative the first half, but It was
nice to see there were a few more participants. Thanks to quite a few repeat
operators this event, especially at the last hour ... AF2Z, Drew and AC2C, Ron.
Others that hung in there, W8BFT, Ed, WA1OTZ, Rich, AH6AX, Larry, KB1WOD,
Dave and N4IVE, David. Unfortunately, propagation between my "niner" sidekick,
W9DLN, Dan and I, it wasn't in the cards. Although 80 meters worked well Saturday
evening, this old phart petered out early. I'm sure Dan did very well overall again as he g
he generally does with all those who participated. Again, my sincere thanks to Dick for
for coordinating another great one and for all those participating. Happy sending and
and copying to all. 73 and look forward to another CW Fun Event. Sincerely, jack

Rig used: Ten Tec Eagle and K4VIZ Cootie and K4VIZ 90 degree horizontal bug. CU

Not a good weekend as my power supply fried early Friday. After getting back on the air as time allowed,
conditions just weren't good. Looking forward to next months fun.

I enjoyed all my QSOs on Friday night. I had hoped to operate the rest of the
weekend but that didn't work out. I look forward to Event-17! 73, Glen, NK1N

Enjoyed it, as always. I wish more of our SKCC members would join us... it's much
more fun (& challenging) to me than just passing SKCC nos. It would be great if
you and SKCC merged this into a monthly WES Event (maybe as an "Option" for
more points?

It was a lot of fun until the crisis. My mother-in-law fell and broke her hip so I spent
the rest of the Fun Event at the hospital with her. And I thought band conditions were
going to be tough! Thanks for the contact Dan, Dave, Ed and Randy. I've asked
everyone to please SCHEDULE their emergencies around my radio activities. We'll
see how that works out. A special thanks to Dick, K2RFP for putting these events
together. 73, Jim

I had a lot of fun with the CW Fun event. I wish I didn't have to work for much of the event. Jack and
Dan were omnipresent for the entire event and everyone I talked with was really nice. Using a
straight key is the only way I know how to key and it was nice that there was an event like this to
encourage others to play with their keys. The bands were not always cooperative but the spirits
seemed high anyway. I especially enjoyed the spotter page.

I didn't have much time to play in this event and when I did there was either nothing
going on or a few contesters. Thanks to all participants. See you next time.

Have to admit a score of 0. Until propagation improves to the USA it will be hard to
get any QSO's. Same with my quest for T x 8, I still need 47 and have done so since
1st July.
Rig: TS-440s, 100 watts, Cushcraft MA6V vertical. Key: Marconi Coast Station
pump key PS No213A ex GKA - Portishead Radio, c1946.

Well it seems I missed one of the more active events...bummer. I was fighting fever
and only managed to make a few contacts. Bands seemed in average shape but activity
seemed way up for this event. I am glad to see it growing. It is my favorite event.
Radio was KX3 into an LnR Endfedz at 33 feet running 5 to 8 watts.
A fun time was had and I always look forward to the next one.

I missed a lot of this event but was present for the final hour when things really lit up, this time
bouncing back and forth with many repeat contacts with Ron AC2C and Jack KK0I. Seems like
that is when the full potential of this event comes out. Logged some SWL points during the slow
periods when no one was answering my CQ. I hope to be more active myself next time.

Thanks for another great FE. Didn't operate much on Sunday due to internet
being down here.

Hardly any time to get on - very busy weekend. Made all 8 contacts on the bench in
basement using my Omni VI Plus and a Nye straight key and copying on paper. Condx
were very bad. All q's were on 40.
