CQWW RTTY was a bad weekend for spot analysis.  I lost the last couple hours
to a power and phone outage, and also lost a large number of dxsummit spots
when my download program lost it's connection and didn't complain.  But
there are still lots of goodies and badies as you will see below.

I did manage to collect 18318 spots in my node database for about 45 hours
of the contest.

Cheerleader report:

How this works...  the number in the 'spots' column is how many spots the
spotter made for that dx station.  the total column is how many spots the
spotter made that weekend.  and the pct is what percentage of spots the
spotter made were for only that one station.  so ki5dr made 105 spots over
the weekend, and 104 of them were for k5na/m.

WOW! 104 spots in TQP by ki5dr for k5na/m!  that has to be a record of some
kind!  Oh, and in case you were wondering, the 1 spot not for k5na was a
typo where he spotted '142' on a frequency of 71000... then of course
corrected it to be 14271 and the right call.

The top rtty contest cheerleaders are a tie by IV3YIM spotting IV3OWC and
UA9JMB spotting RK9JWR... must be the neighborhood spotting nets at work...
also note Z23MC spotting Z37M, IW8EFJ spotting II7CC, LZ2NP spotting LZ8A,
and UA0SJ spotting RN0SS.  must have been the bad conditions sunday making
those the only stations the spotters could hear.

yep, we made 15 spots of nb1b from here... 5 of them were on 10m, where they
just sounded so lonely sitting there cqing.  They were m/m and we were m/2
so we had lots of time to dial around dead bands and make spots, and often
they were the only station we would hear.


Single spotter spots:

Ok, a reminder of how this works.  This is an analysis of spots from both
the entire network (the 'all' column) and just spots from dxsummit(via the
#cqdx irc channel).  What it shows is... first, how many spots the dx
station got in the 'total' column.  Then the 'all' column shows how many of
those spots were from spotters that made only a single spot the whole
weekend.  and the DXSummit column shows how many of the spots were from
spotters who made that single spot from dxsummit.  i break out dxsummit
separately because it is so easy to put in a fake callsign there to make a
spot 'anonymously'(not really as you will see later).  High percentages can
be due to a couple things.  First, very rare stations get lots of spots from
dxers who work them and then brag to the world of their achievement... then
they turn off the radio and wait for the next rare one to show up.  The
other common source are spotters trying to hide their identity because they
are complaining about something.  And of course the ones we are interested
in are the spotters who try to hide their identity in order to 'help' a
friend or themselves.  

DX		Total	All 	DXSummit
SY8GE		162	33(20%)	8(4%)	non-contest
FP/G3SXW	130	26(20%)	7(5%)	non-contest
ZX7A		46	20(43%)	20(43%)	
M2B		21	20(95%)	20(95%)
A25/DF3GY	80	19(23%)	3(3%)	non-contest
FP/G3TXF	101	19(18%)	2(1%)	non-contest
HC8N		301	16(5%)	6(1%)	
FO/KM9D	42	12(28%)	4(9%)	non-contest
CN2BC		46	10(21%)	2(4%)	non-contest
YI9KT		39	10(25%)	4(10%)	non-contest
TU2/F5LDY	43	9(20%)	3(6%)	non-contest

as you can see, most of the high scores on this analysis are expeditions...
notice that they tend to run about 20% single spotters over all and single
digits from dxsummit.  Even note that hc8n scores relatively low, percentage
wise, on both sources, they only showed up because they got LOTS of spots
from the contest.  Of course then there are zx7a and m2b... more later.

the dxsummit spots)

I didn't catch all of these in the dxsummit data, but the 7 of them i got
all came from ip:
which it is no surprise to anyone who has followed these analysis in the
past comes back to:
netname:      BT-CENTRAL-PLUS
country:      GB
BT is of course British Telecom.


Now on to other interesting observations

notice that i have 3 groups of spots broken out here.  The spots all come
from the 202.158.*.* block of ip addresses that belongs to (of course):
descr:        Bank Haga
descr:        Jl Abdul Muis 28
descr:        Jakarta 10160
country:      ID

So the spots by the YB calls in the 2nd and 3rd blocks make sense...
however, the spots in the first block are not likely to have originated from
the stations who's calls were used.


In the "Don't you just love it when they do dumb stuff" catagory this time

SWL-@:	28079		RX3AGD	RTTY
RX3AGD-@:	14086.9	YB0EIN	RTTY
RX3AGD-@:	14083.1	VQ9LA		RTTY EA2APH/P ALSO CQ'ing hr
SWL-@:	14126.7	RX3AGD	RTTY
SWL-@:	28081.5	RX3AGD	RTTY WW

The Ip group is of course from:
address:        "Mobile TeleSystems" OJSC
address:        4, Marksistskaya str., 109147 Moscow, Russia

what is of course fun about this is that rx3agd makes spots from the ip
address, then changes to SWL and spots himself.  

Hasn't this guy made my reports before???  Of course he did, with the same
type of stuff in last year's cqww rtty report, last year's arrl dx ssb
report, and a few others i think.
