Have you ever wondered what the record score is for your country in the WPX Contest? Or for your call area? Or the Rookie overlay category on 10 meters? Or the multi-single category for Kazahkstan?
Records represent the historical high water marks for a contest. Records may be the result of a great operator, a great station, fantastic conditions, or a combination. No matter the reason, they provide a target that is begging to be broken. Since only one person can hold a given record, owning one is a source of pride and accomplishment.
One of the advantages of having more than 25 years of WPX Contest results available in the online score database is that we can automatically generate listings of all time score records. The new records page allows you to look up records at the World, Continent, Country, and Call Area levels. For each region, the records are shown for all possible categories for both CW and SSB.
Start searching for records by visiting http://www.cqwpx.com/records.htm Select the geographic region of interest from the drop down list at the top of the page and then click on submit. The drop down list includes every country from which a log has been submitted.
If you want to learn more about a particular record, click on the hyperlink for the category to see a list of the all time high scores for that category and geographic region.
There are a very large number of category records that are available to the first person to submit a log! Spend a few minutes checking out your region and set your goals for the upcoming WPX Contests!
The Overlay categories (Rookie and Tribander/Single-Element) have their own separate record pages. That is because the overlay categories essentially operate as separate Contests-Within-A-Contest so are reported separately in the results.
