Thank you Rick, ZL2HAM for creating your visualization maps based on logs submitted from the 2011 CQ World Wide DX SSB event. I have a better understanding of why location counts in RadioSport as a result of your hard work. It did not sink in as to the challenge a West Coast station overcomes in order to achieve a DX event Box score.
Now, I can see ‘the why’ because of distance and concentration of stations. However, from the perspective of a national level event like Sweepstakes or NAQP, my location in California has an advantage.
