Hi Bob,

0.3% error rate in reports/exchanges sounds a bit high in a contest where just
CQ zones are exchanged. On the contrary in a contest with serial numbers like
WPX I would rate 0.3% error rate in exchanges as being quite good! ;-)

Here are my details if you want to compare (SOSB10):

     2232 Claimed QSO before checking (does not include duplicates)
       13 (0.6%) calls copied incorrectly
        1 (0.0%) exchanges copied incorrectly

I know we can always try to improve our copying proficiency but it would be interesting to know what a realistic target might be, so I would like them to be published for that reason. I notice the WAE publishes a "% penalty applied" to the top ten stations, but there is no detail like the CQ report.
