CW Fun Event-17 Results

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: 57
Number of registered participants heard by someone: 32
Number of registered participants that submitted data: 26
Number of un-registered participants that submitted data: 2
Total number of participants that submitted data: 28

The table below, in alphabetical order by call sign, is for registered participants,
that someone has reported copying a word from.


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.

Survey Question: For future CWFun Events I prefer the WordList words to be
Choice-1 = LETTERS only and announced
Choice-2 = DIGITS only and announced beforehand.
Choice-3 = a mix of LETTERS and DIGITS and announced beforehand.
Choice-4 = any of the above but kept a surprise until I register and get my wordlist.

Here are the results of the Survey:

Started off with a bit of a panic when words weren't increment....Dick straightened
me out and they weren't supposed to be increment for SWL logs...doh!
Had a grand time running back and forth from Holiday duties and sneaking a FE fix
every chance I got. Not a lot of "time" playing but "loads" of fun playing.
Thanks to everyone that played and hope to see you in FE-18!!! Spread the word and
bring a friend. The more the Merrier!!
Merry Christmas and see you all in K3Y!!

Ya'll Have a Happy!!

I did a little better on this one than the last one. Messed up my first 11 contacts and had to start the
log over again. But I think I made up for that issue. Again, Dan is a master at this. Glad to see Ed..
ac2c, af2z, ah6ax, n6ev w9dln, w8bft were really pushing it hard in the last hour. It was non stop for
the whole hour with Dan being the final CQ FE I heard at the last minute. Look forward to event 18 :)

Had a good time but could find very few on the band.OK with all in the survey, so I
checked
any of the above. Looking forward to next FE.

Great fun, as always, even when the bands weren't cooperating. At the end, N4IVE
hijacked my freq and got me involved in a three-some with W9DLN. I had to QSY to
save my reputation! see you all next time.

Submitted by: N5JPX - Jim

Thanks Dick for another great and fun event. I'm not going to say band conditions
were great but they were adequate for the task. This is a great bunch of operators
and it is always fun to exchange "funny" words. Thanks for QSO's and for the fun.
Hope to see all of you in FE 18. 73, Jim, N5JPX

Another fun Fun Event. Thanks for having this again.

Holiday socializing obligations kept me away from the radio more than I liked, but at least I QSOed
with a few of you. A big thanks to all of you who pulled my pip-squeak signal out of the noise!!!

I only had a few hours to play this time around with holiday preps going on. Hope to
afford more hours in FE-18. This time around I used my recently acquired 1920
Vibroplex Original, aka "The River of Doubt" bug. If you haven't yet seen the fascinating
story about this bug and its original owner, check out the write-up on my webpage:
N6EV.com/

I wish all of you and your families a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and New Year!

Nice event, as always. Ran 50 watts from my IC-7000 to an all band vertical with a
Kent Straight Key. See y'all next time.

I had a problem with SPRINTLOGGER so I used SKCCLOGGER file. Then I lost
the very first log when I inadvertently dumped the entry. I've since found what I did
wrong on the SPRINTLOGGER so will be back to using it for the next CW Fun
event. Then, to compound my problem, I wasn't thinking (I know, my normal mode!)
and did a back-to-back QSO with Drew (AF2Z) - he's okay - he had another QSO
between us, I messed up. That's why I'm glad it's a hobby and not Brain Surgery!!!
Thanks, Dick for another fun event - I just wish more would join us - it's more
challenging than simply copying SKCC numbers.... I suggest SKCC board and
K2RFP get together and make a joint sprint challenge - perhaps on a quarterly
basis as a SPECIAL sprint?... he said, as he climbed down off the soap box.

Nice contest! I liked it! Only got a few hours to participate....but see lots of
"The Usual Suspects".....will be back for another. Ran 50W with my FT-2000, Speed-X
Straight Key, and used the Sprintlogger (worked great!). Bands were pretty good from
my end, just not that many signals. Happy (and safe!) Holidays to all...hope Santa
brings that Bengali key.......
72/73! Steve WB4OMM

I LOVE CW!!
