Have you ever wondered what the record score is for your country in the WPX
Contest?  Or for your call area?  Or the Rookie overlay category on 10
meters? Or the multi-single category for Kazahkstan?

Records represent the historical high water marks for a contest.  Records
may be the result of a great operator, a great station, fantastic
conditions, or a combination. No matter the reason, they provide a target
that is begging to be broken.  Since only one person can hold a given
record, owning one is a source of pride and accomplishment.

One of the advantages of having more than 25 years of WPX Contest results
available in the online score database is that we can automatically generate
listings of all time score records. The new records page allows you to look
up records at the World, Continent, Country, and Call Area levels. For each
region, the records are shown for all possible categories for both CW and

Start searching for records by visiting http://www.cqwpx.com/records.htm

If you want to learn more about a particular record, click on the hyperlink

and geographic region.

There are a very large number of category records that are available to the
