There is a new blog entry on the CQ WW web site that provides some
additional information on error rates for CQ WW SSB 2013.


The average Error Rate for all logs was 3.60%.

Note: Percentages can be misleading.  A station that makes 10 QSOs and has
one error will have an Error Rate of 10%. There is no reason for anyone to
feel bad at making a few errors in all the QRM of CQ WW SSB!
