ContestOnlineScore.com and our generous sponsor Icom America extended award program. We are currently announcing adding two new contests to the program ( CQ WPX SSB 2020 and CQ WW SSB 2020). We are adding one more plaque – Single Operator QRP.
The following plaques will be available for participants in the CQ WPX SSB Contest March 28-29, 2020:
– Highest Online Scoreboard (Single operator High Power)**
– Highest Online Scoreboard (Multi-operator Any Power includes M/S, M/2 and M/M entries )
** Single operator category includes assisted and non-assisted entries
There is one requirement for all contenders. They are required to actively contribute their scores to Contest Online ScoreBoard or cqcontest.net directly or forwarded over Score Distribution Server during the contest.
The plaques winners will be awarded after official results will be published by the contest organizers. Any disqualified entries will not be eligible.
The 2020 COSB/Icom America trophy program supports four contests in 2020:
One more option has been added to the COSB functionality – the hourly rate competition with your last year result. It’s possible only for contests from WRTC archive – https://contestonlinescore.com/archive/wrtc.php. If we have your call in the last year contest archive you can get both scores current and last year. For example if you are running ARRL DX CW 2020 and we have your call in the ARRL DX CW 2019 archive you could get both year rates:
Just find out your call with the “dash” and last year. For example my last year hourly rates is associated with VA2WA-2019 call. COSB provides rates in a real time. So you can make correction to your contest strategy on fly!
Breaking news! The sharing direct postings between COSB and cqcontest.net is up again! It has finally started yesterday February 7, 2020 right before a big contest weekend with CQ WPX RTTY. Both scoreboards exchange direct coming postings instantly by forwarding them to the Distribution Server. The Distribution Server ( scoredistributor.net ) forwards them to the another scoreboard.
Our scoring service automatically recognizes new club name provided in a scoring posting and adds a new club to the COSB clubs list if there is no any club associated with a user profile. It will be automatically assigned to a user profile as well. A user should be careful with the club name. For example Preble ARA or Preble Amatuer Radio Association will be considered as two different clubs.
We have configured COSB server to use a user profile configured club as the highest priority. Once club is configured in a user profile any other club provided by a logger will be ignored. That could be changed manually to another club from the COSB clubs list on the profile page ( https://contestonlinescore.com/profile/ ).
Another option would be emptying the club name on the profile page and configure a new club in a logger. This way user can add a new club to the COSB list by him/herself by using own logger application.
ContestOnlineScore.com is establishing a special award program to encourage the use of scoreboards during international contests. We are currently announcing three plaques that will be available for participants in the CQ WW CW Contest November 23-24, 2019:
