    RaDAR - November 2021 "Official" results

    Posted: 17 Feb 2022 09:47 AM PST https://zs6bne.wordpress.com/2022/02/17/radar-november-2021-official-results/

    I was busy refining the Evaluator to cater for all the RaDAR Challenge
    rules. I had to edit just about all the logs, not the QSO or Grid detail
    but adding Power which means nothing here really and adding the x / 5
    markers estimating which QSOs were most valid.

    The overall result (Category X) November the sixth 2021 from 00:00 to 23:59

    The graph shows all participants that actually logged their QSOs online. Queries can be further done to determine the scores for the Categories A,
    B, C and D (Chasers).

    Category A (24 Hour challenge)

    Category B (Standard four hour challenge)

    Category C (Two hour RaDAR Sprint)

    Category D (RaDAR Chaser stations)

    Category D operator can be active at any time on the day of the RaDAR Challenge. They are the chasers and the guys the moving RaDAR stations
    really need. They are usually fixed stations and possibly connected to the
    grid too.

    There is however something I need to look into. I calculate the number of deployments by deviding the number of (Selected) contacts by 5 and rounding
    up. The number of contacts that chaser stations make are calculated in the
    same way although not seen as deployments but certainly can be seen as a multiplier for the many contacts the chaser station could make making
    himself available.

    The categories are calculated separately so this should not present a
    problem, the multiplier for category D just needs a name and has not been mentioned to date.
