Club Competition Update

Last weekend was Sweepstakes Phone and the bands were alive! Many MWA’ers battled for sweeps, with many coming out with all 84 (and a few coming up one or two short). MWA QSO totals and scores were up for the year! We’re hoping that MWA will be moving up the charts in the Unlimited Club Competition!! We’ve also got some great efforts and we might see many MWA stations in the Top Five charts in many categories!

Team South took the Pizza Point with a fine effort and huge activity! Over half the team was on the air for the weekend! Before we show the team results, here are the top MWA scores from our area. Not listed (due to being outside the club circle) was a fine effort by W0CN, operating at WH7Z! Dan scored 291,480 points and will surely be Top Five in his category! Great job Dan!

Here are the results:

  • Team South – 1,709,352 points – 35 active team members (53% of the team!)
  • Team North – 1,104,912 points – 27 active team members (32% of the team)
  • ALL MWA – 2,814,264 points (Up 23% over last year!) – 41% of the club active

Team South leads the Pizza Competition by a score of 3 pts – 1 pt.  This weekend is the big CQ WW DX CW Contest.  It runs from 6pm Friday to 6pm Sunday.  Band conditions will be up and 15M & 10M will be lots of fun!

Good luck to everyone in the DX Contest!

73, Rich NØHJZ

MWA Friend Files

The various friend files for the different contest software have been updated based on current MWA membership. There are two versions for each program, one has MWA flag in the file so when it comes up on the screen you see MWA along with name, etc. Some people like this and others don’t.

The zip file name with at the very end has the MWA flag in the file.

Each zip file also has instructions on how to install with the particular software.
