Honor Roll

I'm sure it's not easy copying my minimal QRP signal on the highly cluttered bands during a contest. So I've decided to 'honor' those contesters who seemingly do it easily - or at least take the time and effort required to get me in their log.

To make my 'Honor Roll', a station must have worked me at least 75 times in contests. I've also had regular QSO's with many of the stations listed, but the totals are only for contest QSO's. I've also worked some of the stations back in the 60's when I ran more than 5 watts. Also when I used other calls like N3AQC, N3A, NY3EC and others. The listing here only includes contacts when I ran 5 watts or less and used my K3WWP call.

Some of the stations listed are contest club stations. I didn't make the effort to find out who the operators were. I've worked some of the stations under different callsigns as they changed with the vanity callsign program. I made no effort to combine totals in that case. The list is compiled simply from call letter listings in my master computer log. I did count /P or /M stations since my log contains a 'base' field which strips the portable designation from the call. For example the 'call' field may be K4BAI/4 and the base field is just K4BAI.

I update this page occasionally, but not regularly. The last update was on February 26, 2022. It still gives an idea of how certain stations copy me in contests.

DX and VE stations are indicated as such. Tied stations are listed alphanumerically

I hope you find this interesting. If you're a QRP contester, you can count on these stations to hear and work you in a contest. I'm fairly certain of that. These stations have great receiving antennas and/or great 'ears'.
