Having reached 500 chaser points (a Semi-Sloth?) it seemed sensible to check the SOTA database for unconfirmed QSOs before applying for the award. I was amazed to find that, out of almost 150 CW contacts, only one log entry has an error, and that is just missing a single letter from my callsign. I think that this is an astounding level of accuracy by all of you activators.
To put this in context, 90 to 95 percent accuracy is considered to be OK in most CW contests, and this is achieved sat in a comfy chair and using sophisticated logging programs, skimmers and cluster spots. To exceed ninety-nine percent accuracy having climed a mountain, set up an antenna and while operating with numb fingers in the rain and wind is nothing short of fantastic!
I take my hat off to you all, you are a credit to our hobby.
