All logs submitted for the WPX Contest are checked using custom software. The software cross checks all QSOs from the available logs and adjusts the score accordingly. As part of this process, we create a log checking report for each entrant.
The log check report is a text file that contains all the information about how your log was scored and any errors that were found. Sections include:
To provide additional feedback on your operation, the report also includes information on how your exchange and call was received by others.
It can be shocking to see a log check report for the first time. Everyone makes errors. The best ops have spent years improving their skills and learning a vocabulary of callsigns. Study your errors and work to improve them in the next contest.
We believe it is helpful for participants to receive information on the errors found in their log. We hope everyone uses this opportunity to look for ways to improve. To help you understand the value of the reports, we have made a few log check reports public from WPX SSB 2010.
Note: Your browser may ask you if you want to download the file. Select yes. Then use any text editor such as Notepad or Wordpad to view the file.
The email with link to your log checking report is sent to the email account you used to submit the log. Using a valid email address to submit your log (or provide one in the log file) is very important. We use that address if we need to contact you about your entry.
If you did not receive an email and would like to see your report please contact the WPX Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
