with the upcoming RDXC some figures about the operation times in this
contest as calculated by the organizers in their score list for 2009


Basic finding over the >1300 allband-entries: an amp makes you operate
longer... All High-power-categories had op-times above the average of 10,8
hours in this 24-hour-competition.

Those 10,8 hours are exactly the value of 2005 while 2006 and 2007 had 9,8

The WRTC-qualifying may have had its impact because the percentage of
full-time ops (8,5%) was higher than in recent years.

Still the majority operates less than halftime with 60,8 percent staying
below 12 hours and 69 percent below 14 hours.


For those interested in more figures and graphs look at


All the best and 73, Chris (DL8MBS)
