CQ WW WPX CW 2020. Results

The results of the CQ WW WPX CW Contest were published. I am very glad to see my result in the Top Ten in the World and in Europe.

The propagation conditions were not too good during the second night and the propagation to North America was poor. I could hear stations from Balkans working USA while I was not able to copy the signals of US stations. It’s typical situation when something is happening in the ionosphere.

Anyway the final result is not bad (9th in the World and 7th in Europe) and it is also the third results in the Polish All Time record in Single OP Assisted 20m HP. I am also very glad that the log accuracy is close to 96% according to the UBN report.


It was possible to participate the CQ WW WPX CW Contest this year. Of course again from the contest station SO4M. And again in the Single Operator 20m High Power Assisted.

The propagation was a little disturbed the second night (K Index raised to 3) so there were not too much stations from North America. No good runs. Fortunately the first and the last night were really good (K Index = 1).

I was trying to beat my WPX CW record from 2015 (All Time Polish Record). This year I even made more QSOs than in 2015 but the final score is not as high. Here is the comparision of the claimed number of QSOs by continents:

20151 076449941830632
2020814601 2391332735

Please note the number of QSOs from NA and EU. It makes the difference in the final score (DX QSOs give more points).

I wrote a story (in Polish) about my WPX CW participation. It is published at the WWW site of the club station HF5L (my friends): https://hf5l.pl/starty-ze-stacji-so4m/
