The CQWW Contest committee is busy working on the 2016 logs.
While that is going on, we thought it would be interesting to look at the trend in the single-op, all band, high power category. Some tell us that this is where the “real” competition is.
This study is limited to Europe and North American, because those two continents represent the majority of entrants. Please see the table below, which tracks the percent of entrants, by continent, who claimed Assisted.
