I am well on my way to 1,000,000 q's.
Over 35 1/2 years of operating and 35 years of contest
operating, I have made somewhere North of 800k q's.
For many years I was in the 25-30k annual qso range, 85+% of
which was from contest operating, and from 1999-2004 after my
station was built, I was averaging over 40K q's /year, 90+% of which
was from contest operating.
There were a few years where I was averaging MORE than
4,000 q's/dx contest between CQWWCW, CQWWSSB, ARRLDXCW,
ARRLDXSSB, WPXSSB, WPXCW and the IARU and 10 meter
contest added almost another 3,000 each!
My production from 2005-2008 was substantially reduced
but is slowly coming back up again. :-)
Since I guest operated for more than 25 years at a significant number
of M/2, M/M and M/S operations, my best guess is that I made
600k+ q's as a single op. with the rest being q's I made at multi-ops.
Of those approx 600+k q's, probably 500k or so were made under my own
call. I will never know for sure.
I guess I will have to make another 500k q's just to be sure I hit
1,000,000 q's under my own call! I think that I might have enough time
to do it. :-)
You might want to check with N6TJ and N6AA. They have been
globe-trotting for 30+ years. K3WW has also been exceptionally active
over a VERY long time!
