2012 CQ WPX Log Check Report – Meta Analysis

Log Check Report

A brilliant morning looking out toward the Pacific Ocean with a sunny sky blazing away after two days of needed rain fall.

The meta-analysis of WPX CW 2012 with 4,000 plus logs submitted, 2.8 million QSO, and 180 participating countries was completed on the 1st of December. I’m working to understand the data for example what does 83.8% unique calls busted after 16,889 different calls were credited and 0.1% busted reverse log calls mean?

There is a total of 2.8 million QSOs with 2.4 million checked against another log and 2.3 million checked good when checked against another log. What is the total error percentage? Is my error percentage within range of the mean?

The North American QSO Party is scheduled for early January and I’m going to work at improving my skill at copying callsigns during the event. The path to a Golden Log is practice, practice, practice.
