The Oceania DX (OCDX) contest committee is pleased to advise that the results of the 2011 contest are now available at http://www.oceaniadxcontest.com/2011_Results.htm .

Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to everyone who participated in the 2011 OCDX contest, even if it was only to make one or two QSOs.

What a difference one year can make! After many years of hibernation the 10M band finally exploded back to life with more than 20% of the action in the 2011 contest occurring on this band. The low bands were in poor shape but this was more than offset by the excellent conditions on the higher bands. The 2011 OCDX contest was the biggest so far with a total of 1259 logs being submitted. This represents a 15% increase over the previous record of 1092 logs in the 2010 contest. In particular it was pleasing to see an 81% increase in the number of logs submitted from North American stations. The increased activity can be attributed to excellent conditions on the HF bands, the efforts of the T32C and YJ0VK DX expeditions, and a growing awareness of the contest and the unique opportunity that it provides to work DX from the Oceania area.


Certificates have been awarded to the top scoring station in each category for each continent and country. Additionally, a participation certificate identifying the number of successful QSOs has been awarded to each station that participated in the contest. The certificates are available online for downloading and printing by individual entrants at their convenience. The web link to the certificates can be found at http://www.oceaniadxcontest.com/2011_Results.htm .
