Introduction

Plans for the 2020 New England QSO Party significantly changed during the few weeks beforehand, as closures and travel restrictions due to the Covid virus mostly shut down travel throughout New England.    During late April all New England states announced stay at home and mask rules.    A number of people planning for elaborate mobile efforts had to cancel their plans.   On the other hand, with so many people at home around the country, there was a huge uptick in the number of people on the air and contesting!

We received 1101 logs, up 68% from the 654 logs in 2019.  There were 44 logs from Canada,  36 from DX stations, 816 from USA stations and 283 from New England.  The total number of QSOs made by all stations after log checking came in at 154,015 - two times the number of QSOs reported in 2019!!.

All  but one of the 67 New England counties were on the air with 887 different stations represented in the logs.   By state, the totals were 164 stations from Connecticut, 339 from Massachusetts, 104 from Maine, 159 from New Hampshire, 63 from Rhode Island and 58 from Vermont. The hardest to work counties were Essex VT,  Orange VT, Caledonia VT and Knox ME.

  

Propagation

Solar K-index

Solar activity was low with few sunspots and a quiet geomagnetic field.  DX propagation was not very good but within North American there was sure a lot of action.

Mobiles

Only two W1 mobiles reported any activity, and they were both in rural nothern New England.  Thanks to Max/K1TIG/m who took a trip north covering four counties in NH and Jose/KB1TCD/m who used his Hamsticks to activate two counties in Maine (plus his home QTH).    I know we'll see both of them again in the future.

Ed/W5TM was the big gun from west of the Mississippi River.  There were nearly 300 entries in the SOHP category.

There were 463 enries in the Single Operator Low Power category, a new record.   The top scorer was Jeff/N8II from West Virginia with 340 QSOs in 59 counties for 29,618 points.  The rest of the top five were Bill/AC0W from Minnesota, Metro/W8MET from Ohio, Dave/WN4AFP from South Carolina, and Roger/K0MPH from Minnesota.  Bill/N6ZFO had the top west coast score.

Tom/K3TW from Florida earned the top SOQRP score with 142 CW and 72 SSB QSOs in 46 counties for 16,376 points, followed closely by Vic/K9UIY in Illinois with a score of 15,996.  

There were fewer Multi-single entries than usual in 2020 with Covid restrictions cancelling many efforts, and moving others to try remote access methods.   The team of Valerie/NV9L plus Jerry/WB9Z  put NV9L at the top of the chart with 408 QSOs and 57 counties for 36,651 points.   The NX6T team from San Diego was second with 32,312 points, and set a California record.  

Special thanks to everyone who participated in all of the QSO parties on the same day  - W1 W7 DE and IN - and sent in a log or check log!

Canada

Alan/VA1MM from Nova Scotia topped the SOHP category with 156 CW and 46 SSB QSOs in 47 counties for 16,826, closely followed by Rob/VE4GV setting a Manitoba record with 16,422, then Todd/VE5MX with 13,760 points from Saskatchewan, also a new record.  In the SOLP category, the top three entries were all from Ontario with Tony/VE3RZ in the lead with 19,200 points, then Evgeny/VE3AQ and Harry/VA3EC.     

DX

The big surprise was the huge SOHP score from Laszlo/OM2VL, who had 46,905 points after log checking, with 288 CW and 217 SSB QSOs, in 59 counties all from Slovakia (4200 miles/6700 km away).   His total beat all of the USA scores except for one, and set a new record for any DX station.   Congrats!    Dietmar/DL3DXX ws second with 293 CW QSOs in 54 counties for 27,542 points and a new German record.   Sam/LY5W was third, setting a record from Lithuania.

Log checking

The log checking process was pretty thorough and most entries lost a few QSOs.There were 1101 logs overall, with 1085 in electronic format (98.5%) and only 16 on paper.    The best operators have error rates in <3% range.  The logs we have the most trouble with are those with ADIF files instead of the requested Cabrillo format.  They usually do not have the necessary basic information like entry caregory. Paul/W8TM earned the Golden Log plaque in the 2020 contest with no errors in 197 QSOs.   Andy/AA5JF and Dave/N4DW each had 179 flawless contacts.

For non-New England stations, cross checking was possible on 52,625 of the 59,730 QSOs reported (88.1%).  For New England stations, cross checking was possible for 63,983 of the 102,609 QSOs reported (62.4%).  


Logging Software

More than 40 different logging programs were used by NEQP participants.  N1MM Logger+ continues to have the lion's share of the users, QSOs and points.  Not everyone upgrades their logging software to the current version - there were 36 different versions of the N1MM Logger+ software (and nine versions of the original N1MM Logger software which was discontinued a few years ago).   N3FJP's array of contest software has now moved into second place among NEQP entrants.

Soapbox

You can get a real feel for the contest by going through the various "Soapbox" comments from the big guns, the little guns and everyone in between.  

Thanks 

The 2021 contest in coming up the first weekend of May, so I hope to see everyone active.   If you're from New England, let us know if you'll be QRV this year - send a message to us at info@neqp.org with the county name(s).  We'd like to be sure all counties are active!
