2019 CQWWDX Final Results
As an update to our previous report on the claimed scores for the 2019 CQWWDX contest, we should record the fact that in the SSB weekend, the final results showed that W3LPL managed to sneak past K3LR to win the USA Multi-Multi category that year. This was the first SSB win for the ‘LPL gang in a long time and they must be savoring it. Congratulations!
What a battle that was. On the basis of claimed scores, K3LR’s ops were ahead just 19,201 points (out of a claimed score of 12,385,720 points). In the final results, though, W3LPL topped the ‘LR score by 58,318 points. The LPL score was reduced by 677,769 points compared with a reduction of 755,288 points for ‘LR. Interestingly, Tim’s ops had 302 more QSOs and 2 more mults than the ‘LPL ops, but K3LR was called by more zero-point US stations and ‘LPL worked more three point European and other stations. Looking over these stations’ breakdowns in their 3830 Scores reports is quite interesting. On a claimed basis, W3LPL logged 1,349 North American stations, including 341 VEs and 705 K stations! What an amazing total. But K3LR’s totals were even more amazing: 1,861 North American stations worked including 528 VEs and 1010 K stations!
There was no change in the final results for the CW weekend. W3LPL was well ahead on a claimed score basis, and remained so in the final results. It is worth noting, though, that Tim’s ops managed to work five more zones and 10 more countries than Frank’s. Those ops at K3LR really know how to find the multipliers!
