Announcing the new On-Line Score Database for the WPX Contest
I am a numbers guy. I love to look at contest scores from around the world and imagine what challenges or thrills operators were experiencing during the contest. One of the things I always missed in the CQ WPX Results was the ability to see band breakdowns and operating time for each entry. My mission for January was to do something about that!
With thanks to past WPX Director N8BJQ and his log checking databases, I am excited to announce a new searchable score database containing all WPX SSB Contest log submissions from 1996 to 2008! Search selections allow you to filter the database by year, continent, country, category, and callsign. You can select options to view band breakdowns, club names, complete operator lists, and change the sort order. The database also contains all soapbox comments from the logs, which can be viewed for each contest.
The records are as complete and accurate as we could make them. The earlier you go in time, the less complete the details such as club name, operators, or operating time may be. Despite our best efforts I expect there are some errors. Please take a moment to look at your own scores and let me know if anything is not correct. Please provide enough information so I can research the error and make the correction. Going forward, this on-line database will be the official record for score corrections for the WPX Contest.
If you have any questions about how to use the search features or suggestions on other views that you would like to see, please send them in.
I am open to any ideas on how to make the score database more useful for WPX participants.
A similar database for WPX CW is now under construction. Look for that to be complete by on-line release of the 2008 WPX CW Contest results at the end of March.
