CW Fun Event-18 Results


Date: March 19, 2016
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: 74
Number of registered participants heard by someone: 38
Number of registered participants that submitted data: 29
Number of un-registered participants that submitted data: 2
Total number of participants that submitted data: 31

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.

It's always fun to pound brass with this crowd! This Fun Event was a bit challenging
with the very poor band conditions but there were some surprises like working Walt,
LW3EX. Dan, W9DLN was everywhere and became my "go to" guy every time I
managed to work someone else. It was a great pleasure to finally work Dick,
K2RFP and a big thanks to him for putting these events together and handling all
the "administrative" chores. Hopefully, the next one will feature better band
conditions and more operators.

Icom 7410 at 100 watts to my 80 meter loop.

73,
Jim, N5JPX

First time that I have done this event. An interesting event. Excellent custom
logging program to support the event. A lot of work went into programming the
logger, the web pages, and the word list / password generator. And I'm sure that
there is a lot more software that was written to support the log validation /
analysis and then post the results. The event was announced several places to drum
up business. Time was spent mailing out the word lists as they are being requested.
Dick has certainly done a great job with all aspects of this event, from conception
to management. Now all we need is a couple of thousand more active participants to
show up and appreciate all that goes into making it happen.

Thank Goodness for a 48 hour event. Between spending time with family & friends at
Merchants Mill Pond State Park and dashing out for a few contacts it was quite the
weekend.
Conditions seemed really bad Saturday but still managed several good contacts. Very
pleasant surprises were contacting Walt, LW3EX and John G0RDO! Good to see old
friends and new participants in this event. It is slowly growing but fast increasing
in "Fun Factor".
Pass the word, It's free,It's Fun and participants will wear the key out with fills
until that magic "word" is copied.
Thanks Dick for an outstanding Fun Event. BCNU all in #19!!
