Log Check Reports for all entrants to the 2012 WPX CW Contest are now available. An email with a link to the Log Check Report has been sent to everyone who submitted a log. The emails include a private link to the report file.  If you submitted a log and did not receive an email, you might want to check your junk mail folder. You may also request your report from director@cqwpx.com.

We did a deeper level of log checking this year than ever before. There were 22,107 QSOs with unique callsigns among the 2,835,110 QSOs.  83.8% of those unique QSOs were determined to be incorrect.  The median score reduction was 9.4%.  WPX is usually a little higher than other contests since many busted calls create prefix multipliers.

Thanks to everyone who participated in WPX CW 2012.  The official results will appear in the March 2013 issue of CQ Magazine and on the CQ WPX Contest web site www.cqwpx.com.
