Thanks for your hard work with this Randy!

I see the Unique percentage continues to decline, and now is under 4% of total
QSO's. I remember being taught the human error rate was in the 3% range so it
looks like the submitted logs are falling in the ballpark. It will be
interesting to see if it continues to drop in each iteration.
Curiosity makes me ask what kind of weird uniques do you discover through the
processing, discounting typical letter/number transpositions? Or have you
posted an overview of the SCP database processing steps somewhere?

Subject: [N1MM] New Super Check Partial Files Available VER20061014 (14 Oct
A new release of the Super Check Partial database files are available at
This set of files was created out of 3,226,732 QSOs from 2,725 logs. The
full data set contained 117,972 unique calls resulting in a master.dta file
of 41,000 calls after filtering.
The files can be downloaded individually or in a complete package as a zip
Win-Test Users note: There is a new file master.scp that contains the same
calls as master.dta, but in the ASCII format that Win-Test prefers.
Statistics from two years of master.dta files are presented at
http://www.k5zd.com/scp/scp_history.html. It is interesting to see how the
increasing number of logs causes an increase in uniques, but not such a
large increase in new calls. I believe we are getting to a set of files that
is a very comprehensive list of the active contest calls around the world.
Please send me your logs immediately after each contest. The easiest thing
is to cc firstname.lastname@example.org when you submit your Cabrillo format log to the
I will produce the next set of SCP files before CQ WW CW in mid November.

PS - If you find bad calls in the SCP files, let me know about it!
