Love seeing statistics about contesting in any form.  Thanks for doing this!

Difficult to compare anything with WPX CW 2010.  Conditions were the worst
of all time last year.  Plus, WPX in early summer is a very different time
from RDXC in the late winter.

We are hoping for much better conditions in WPX CW this month.  May 28-29

> rates of RDXC are higher than those of CQWPX CW for same 
> hours in 2010. This means that bands are livelier during RDXC 
> hours. If we consider European activity we see that European

> period particularly on low bands, which is pretty amazing. 
> Asiatic activity in CW is higher by a considerable margin and
