Raw Scores for the 2021 CQ WPX CW Contest

The raw scores for the 2021 CQ WPX CW contest are now available online at < https://www.cqwpx.com/raw.htm?mode=cw >.

The raw scores are calculated prior to log checking. This should give participants a good indication of their category placement at the World, Continent, or Country level.  Score reductions of 2% to 15% (or more) are possible, so the log checking process must be completed before final results can be announced.

Please check that your entry is in the correct category. Report any errors or questions to < director@cqwpx.com >. Do NOT resubmit your log to ‘fix’ any problems!

Over 6,500 operators participated in CQ WPX CW in 2021; this is the highest participation level ever recorded.  Thank you for submitting your log!
