Activity and interest in the Challenge was strong this year, with more than fifty stations participating by posting their scores on the ClubLog HF Challenge page.  Propagation cooperated, with the number of DXCCs worked on most bands being about the same as last year.

 

The rules changed between 2011 and 2012, with the scores being determined by unique DXCCs worked in 2012 vs. the number of band-slots worked in 2011.  While the total DXCCs worked on individual bands (except 12m) was similar year-on-year, the number of DXCCs worked on multiple bands dropped in 2012 as there was no scoring advantage to working the same DXCC again on a new band.  This same reason may account for the reduced number of DXCCs worked on 12m this year – once an entity was worked on 15m or 10m, there was no scoring advantage to working it again on 12m.  A quick comparison of year-on-year results is:

2012 2011 2010 2009
DXCCs 200 Not recorded 174 103
Bandslots 365 461 293 127
15m 165 159 170 100
12m 101 145 86 21
10m 141 146 43 20
6m 10 14 6 8

 

Trophies and salvers will be presented at the CDXC AGM and Summer Social next July.  Certificates have been emailed to recipients.  Full results are available at www.clublog.org/hfchallenge.php

Congratulations to all the winners!
