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:
We’ve published the new WinTest online scoring utility version. Thanks to Alex, K2BB for the update.
We’ve fixed incorrect multipliers reporting for all the WAE contests. The new version has better UDP traffic sniffing stability. That will be useful for Multi stations having slow network bandwidth or unstable connections over the LAN.
