thanks to the policy of the WRTC 2006 to make all logs public and
thus offering a data pool of about 85000 QSOs, it is possible to
generate a lot of interesting statistics. 

By using the data from all 46 WRTC logs and the spots from the
OH2AQ-Database for all WRTC-Stations, I generated an analysis of 
correlation of DX spots of WRTC stations, and the appearance of
callsigns in the WRTC logs shortly after. Combining this with the
claimed categories according to the official list of submitted
logs raises some questions if some people submitted in the right
category. Remember: Single OPs are not allowed to use spotting
networks in IARU.

The results of the analysis, along with all raw data and the source
code used to generate it can be found here: 


Looking forward to hear any opinions...
