Field Day 2013 log

Image of summary.pdf

Field day log file in ADIF format is attached; thanks to Bill N0WP.
Also the summary points file is attached. It does not include bonus points we get for activities unknown to the logging program. This data shown below has also been condensed into a 1 page summary which is attached as a .pdf and .ods (Open Document Spreadsheet) for import into libreoffice, openoffice.org, or recent versions of excel.

There were 845 non-duplicate QSOs, which total 1225 points (1 point phone, 2 for CW or digital). Since all our stations ran at 150W or less, we get a power multiplier of 2, for 2450 points before bonuses. We get Bonus points for:
100% Emergency power - 100 points
Media publicity 100 points
Public Place 100 points
Info Booth 100 points
NTS message to AARC 100 points
copying W1AW message 100 points
1 formal NTS messages 10 points
Natural power QSOs 100 points
for submitting online 50 points
Estimated total bonus points: 760
Estimated total: 3210 points

Last year, our total was 4436

Using Linux/FreeBSD/un*x operating system command line file utiltities (also available on Mac shell or under cygwin in windoze), I can do some simple single variable analysis. The commands used are shown as "Incantation:"; some readers will wish to ignore those.


Number of QSOs by band and mode after removing duplicates.
Incantation: fgrep -i total W4DO.dup
80  CW  Total Contacts = 32
80  DIG  Total Contacts = 9
80  PH  Total Contacts = 25
40  CW  Total Contacts = 111
40  DIG  Total Contacts = 28
40  PH  Total Contacts = 164
20  CW  Total Contacts = 117
20  DIG  Total Contacts = 29
20  PH  Total Contacts = 240
15  CW  Total Contacts = 54
15  PH  Total Contacts = 35
6  PH  Total Contacts = 1
This adds up to a total of 845 contacts.

Number of QSOs by ARRL Section:
While we did not get some Canadian sections, we got every US section except NNY and all 50 US states. 
I (AK4OL) pounced on a NNY digital station but could not get through on 5W.

     66 DIG

Note that almost all digital mode contacts were on 5W (a few used higher power) while Phone and CW were probably running around 100W. Also, the digital station was shutdown Sunday morning due to increased interference between stations. While it appears the digital didn't do very well, digital made about 13 contacts per watt while CW made about 3.14 and Phone about 465 assuming those were running 100W out - and it did it in only one day. Logarithmically, it comes out to Digital: 94/log(watts), CW: 157/log(watts), Phone: 232/log(watts) but again digital station was shutdown sunday and the CW station was sometimes operated in phone mode. Also, CW and Digital QSOs are worth twice as many points and 5W class is worth 2.5times as many points as 150W class but since the phone and CW stations aren't running QRP, they drag the digital station down and we don't get that multiplier.
Digital: 66QSO * 2 digital points * 2 power points = 264 points (would be 660 if it could get its QSO credit)
CW: 314QSO * 2 CW points * 2 power points = 1256 points
Phone: 465QSO * 1 phone points * 2 power points = 930 points

For those who are interested, here is an explanation of a sample incantation.   It contains 5 commands joined together using a pipe "|" such that the output of the first command is piped through the second, then the third, then the fourth, then the fifth.
Incantation: fgrep -i "<Country:" ARRL-FIELD-DAY.adi  | sed -e "s/<.*>//" | sort | uniq -c | sort -n -r
 fgrep -i "<Country:" ARRL-FIELD-DAY.adi     - Select the lines out of the logfile that contain the <Country: tag
  |  sed -e "s/<.*>//"               - edit out the tag, leaving only the country data
  | sort                                 - sort the lines alphabetically
  | uniq -c                    - remove duplicate lines, but include count of number of duplicates
  | sort -n -r                - now sort the result numerically on number of duplicates but in reverse order (most common first)
Sample data line: 
   <Country:3>USA

logging programs

The log file imports into klog, xlog, and fldigi but the ARRL Section and Class, which are in non-standard fields, are lost. Ditto for CQRLOG but you need to pull up the Show QSO window to even get the menu option to import.
