The high QSO rates for CQ WPX SSB/CW logs are now available at https://www.cqwpx.com/rates/ .
The QSO rates are calculated from the public logs (we are working backwards from 2017). QSOs are counted before dupes and before log checking. We look for the highest QSO count within a 60 minute period in the log. While a log may have several high rate periods, only the highest one is shown in the results.
The QSO Rates page allows you to look at highest rates by category, by continent, and by country. A search function allows you to search for an entry callsign and see the highest rates found for that call.
With the extra effort of copying the serial number for each QSO, the WPX rates are generally not as high as seen in other contests such as CQ WW.
