Re: June vhf contest

Multi-op N0KE had a error rate of 1.9% in June 2017.  Fair but not very good.  We only had 1 NIL but we busted 4 exchanges.

FWIW, going back in history, my single-op error rates over the last few June contests were:

2012:  1.1%
2013:  0.5%
2014:  2.2% (!! - what happened here ?  Maybe lots of weak scatter ??)
2015:  1.2%
2016:  0.1% (missed a golden log by busting one exchange out of 865 Q's)

I finally got around to looking at my log checking report from the contest. (If you haven't already done it, you should. They're here: Out of almost 300 QSOs, I had 3 "not in log" errors. One was with W5ZF. I don't know why Stan didn't log our contact. Another was with K7ZS, who mistakenly logged our 6-meter contact on 2 meters (I don't have any gear on that band). The third was W2EG, probably my fault. Otherwise a clean log, and I'm pleased.

K5TA and I do the writeups for the ARRL Sweepstakes, and we usually discuss logging accuracy. In that contest, most of the serious entrants fall into the 1-5% range for error rate. I don't know what it's like on VHF, but I bet some of you can chime in and let us know.
