7% of contesters self-spotted in ARRL DX SSB 2024

Self-spotting - allowed by the ARRL rules to all entrants in ARRL contests - was used more than twice as often in the SSB leg of the ARRL DX contest than in the CW leg. Several US/VE stations often spotted themselves using DX callsigns and visa versa, to work around geographically restrictive spotting filters.

Fewer than 3% of contesters self-spotted in ARRL DX CW 2024

I gathered manual (non-reversebeacon) spots from 9 Telnet cluster nodes around the world over the 48-hour ARRL DX CW 2024, deduped them, and counted self-spots to see how widely self-spotting has been adopted, 14 months after the ARRL allowed self-spotting by all entrants in ARRL contests.

Once again, I have chosen major contest activities for each weekend. There are two fifth weekends of June and November are shown greyed out, awaiting contest announcements. I anticipate being able to fill these over the coming months and will update the calendar here.

It is formatted for 17 inch by 11 inch Ledger size paper but is certainly readable when printed on 11x8.5 or A4 paper. The table is especially handsome when printed on 17x11 Gloss Cardstock available at better-stocked FedEx Office locations.
