HCRA Clublog Challenge 2017 – Results

HCRA encourages its members to get on the air. Every year we host a “Clublog challenge” where members can compete with each other to see who can make the most contacts throughout the year. HCRA and its members use the clublog.org service as a way to keep track of contacts. Members just upload their logs to the site throughout the year and we’ll take care of the rest.

2017 was quite an interesting year. Compared to years before, you can see how the solar cycle affected the amount of contacts that were made this year. There was an approximate 1/3 decrease in band contacts from last year. Only 3 people made DXCC this year compared to 6 last year.

There are some improvements compared to last year. The WARC band counts have increased. 160m is being utilized and there is an increase in 6 meter contacts as well.
There were some members that were more active this year.

We are still a couple years away from solar minimum. Hopefully that doesn’t discourage anyone. There are contacts still to be made! Lots of All Time New Ones (ATNO) out there.
