I have been volunteering to summarize many of the ARRL DX, CQWW, NCJ Sprint,
North American QSO Party and Wisconsin QSO Party (hoo-boy!) rumors. George
WB5VZL was previously handling most of this work, but I've been giving him a
break. I can tell you that it takes quite a bit of time to organize the
first posting, especially when scores on 3830 come in as QSOs x Mults only
(meaning I get to multiply them all out). For the most part, it is a
thankless job... meaning that rarely does anyone ever drop a note to say "hey
thanks, that was cool." However, I LOVE doing it, and I will continue to do
it so long as I have the time to help out.
Since feedback is rare, I'm wondering if you all like the way I've been doing
the summaries. Is there information missing? I started doing Top 10 boxes
for Q's and mults for Sprint & NAQPs... nobody seemed to notice... you like?
Trey mentioned daily updates for the first week after the contest. Is that
TOO OFTEN? In the past, I'd been doing about every 2/3 days, depending on
the number of new/changed scores received.
Lemme know your thoughts and I'll "summarize" the reponses to the score
Oh, someone wanna take CQWW SSB rumor duties? I'll be out of the country for
the first time in my life (PJ7 & KP4).
