The CQ World Wide SSB and CW Contest rate records have been updated with details from the 2015 CW logs. It’s possible to query the database year, continent, call sign, and country.
“It is interesting to see how many high rate records were set in 2015,” said Randy Thompson, K5ZD, past CQ WW Contests Manager.
Current CW and SSB records in the high-power category were set last year. The CW rate was 371 contacts per hour, set by N6MJ, operating as ZF2MJ. The SSB rate was 407, set by W2SC at 8P5A.
Rates listed are the best 60-minute tallies. Tables also have been posted for Low Power and QRP categories, as well as for multioperator categories. The rates were calculated from publicly available logs before log checking and may include duplicate contacts.
The Cabrillo logs and the top-rate segments are available.
