Midwinter QSO Party 2012
Here are the results of the
Midwinter QSO Party 2012. These will also be the last results because we have
decided to end the contest. Itís a real pity, since
1998 (we had over 60 logs back then!) I have seen the numbers drop to an
all time low: only 7 YLís of a total of 19 participants this year. We did a
lot of PR throughout the years (we
emailed over 300 European YLís 2 years ago for instance), also we made some interesting changes in the rules,
it did not help to turn the tables. Times have changed, people have changed.
I want to thank all
participants, not only this year but throughout the years. It was always a great
pleasure to see my mailbox fill up with paper logs. As time proceeded
the paper logs were swapped for electronic logs and that filled up my
email box quite rapid after the contest. I always liked the personal notes you
put in with your logs! It was fun to design new certificates throughout the
years and from your comments I know you liked them very much. Running the club
station PI4YLC, handing out extra points, all these things added something extra
to the contest for me and I hope it did so for you as well!
Congratulations to all 2012
winners, all first placed in every category will receive their certificate by
email or mail.
We will keep this website
going for a while to inform people looking for information about the Midwinter
PI4YLC will be activated
from time to time, in contesting mostly, so listen out and cu on the air!
