Preliminary ARRL November Sweepstakes CW Results Posted

12/09/2014

Some preliminary results of the 2014 ARRL November Sweepstakes CW have been posted to the ARRL website contest results page as a PDF document. The results do not include line scores — only category winners and Top 10 lists. The results are pending final review. Contributing Editor Kelly Taylor, VE4XT, who is compiling the statistics and authoring the article for this year’s event, noted that the 2014 running of the November CW Sweeps was remarkable for how rare it was to make a “clean sweep.”

“Only 102 stations worked all 83 sections, down from 258 sweeps in 2012,” he reported. Northern Territories (NT) was even more rare than usual. Only two NT stations entered, and they made just 210 contacts between them. Of the eight entry category winners, just five made a clean sweep this year, although the other three came very close.

“No SS CW records were harmed in the running of the 2014 contest,” Taylor quipped.
