SDR Recordings Help with Log Checking

The CQ WW Contest Committee has used SDR recordings in the past to assist with the log checking. It is incredibly valuable for us to be able to go back and listen “live” to what happened at the time and frequency shown in the logs.

Lead by Steve Bolia, N8BJQ, the committee made a much greater effort to collect and use SDR data for checking the 2012 contests. SDR recordings of the complete SSB and CW contests for 2012 were made at 9 sites in Europe, North America, and Oceania. The following stations volunteered their SDR setups to make recordings:

  • ES5PC
  • OH6LI and OH6BG
  • HA1AG with HG6N guys
  • S50XX and S52X
  • WZ7I
  • N4ZR
  • N6TV
  • KH6LC
  • ZL2HAM
