2015 CQWW Phone Claimed Scores
NCC’s multi-op powerhouses – K3LR, K8AZ and W2FU – once again produced some amazing scores in this year’s CQWW Phone contest.
The top US M/M station of K3LR produced what will surely be their 11th straight USA win in this contest with 12,593 contacts and a claimed score of 32.5 million points. Handicapped by poorer 10 meter conditions that resulted in a decrease of 900 contacts from 2014, the ‘LR ops nearly made up for this deficit by large increases in 20, 40 and 160 totals to come up only 96 QSOs behind their 2014 claimed QSO total of 12,689. Their score of 32.5 million was just a hair below last year’s claimed score of 32.8 million. Log checking will determine whether this year’s score will edge out last year’s score of 32.0 million.
Over at K8AZ’s M/S operation, the summer antenna work paid off with over 4,000 Q’s and a claimed score of 8.8 million points. This was 0.5 million points short of the 9.3 million score produced by the team at K6ND, located about 500 miles closer to Europe. The ops at W2FU with a claimed score of 7.1 million and 3,231 contacts, were close behind the amazing K8AZ totals.
Congratulations to all. We’re looking forward to seeing what these stations do in the CW weekend.
