This morning I checked the web re the results of the 2017 CQ WPX Contest which was held on 25th and 26th March 2017. And to my surprise, there was a certificate waiting there for me. It was a certificate for first place in Australia for the Single Op Low Power All Bands section.
The WPX Contest is based on an award offered by CQ Magazine for working all prefixes. Held on the last weekend of March (SSB) and May (CW), the contest draws thousands of entries from around the world.
I made a total of 454 QSOs over the weekend, with a score of 372,876 points.
I came first in Australia in this category, 6th in Oceania, and 845th in the World. I was closely followed by Steve VK2NSS in 2nd place with 207,060 points.
The top scoring station in Australia, who was in the Multi-Two category was VK4KW with 10,344,536 points. The top scorer in the world was CN3A in Morocco with a total of 8,158 QSOs and a score of 55,670,247 points.
Many thanks to CQ Magazine and the organisers of this contest.
