Results:  80 Metres Evening Counties Contest, 28th April 2020

Posted:  13th May 2020

Band conditions were excellent, ensuring plenty of activity for this hour-long contest. It was good to see some "band was very busy" comments in the logs submitted!

43 TX logs and one SWL log enabled 68% of QSOs to be cross-checked. The error rate was low, just 24 errors were identified, less than 2%. The errors were divided more or less evenly between the wrong call sign and an incorrect serial number being logged.

Excluding 'uniques', 60 EI/GI stations, along with 33 overseas stations were in the logs. As usual, CW QSOs were scarce, accounting for less than 8% of QSOs.
