This was my first Stew Perry (and first 160 meter
contest). I was a search-and-pounce operator. My
station consisted of 100 watts to an inverted Vee at
40-feet. Howd I do?
I scored 266/480 (all categories, all stations). 45th
Percentile (55% of the participants beat my score).
While I may have been elated initially, that all
changed after downloading the results table and
analyzing things a bit more:
Against all Single Operator stations, I was 257/467
45th Percentile again
Against only SO, Low Power, I was 109/207 47th
percentile (Hey, pretty cool!)
Then, reality struck...
Against all SOs in the FN field, I was 41/63 35th
Against SO, LP in the FN field, I was 22/31 29th
Against all SOs in FN02/03 (my immediate area), I was
a sad 6/7 15th Percentile
My best DX was only half of all other stations in my
area. Also, my QSO count was ½ to ¼ that of others in
my area. I am now asking myself what I could do to
improve next time.
