Re: New endorsement announcement - Baltic States

ok, i'll bite (numbers are fun!) ... w/two caveats:

1) More the better!

2) "Statistics can be used to prove anything .... and 40% of people know
that" (Homer Simpson)

short answer: West coast has the "advantage" by a score of 12-8.

Long answer ...

First I looked at the callsigns, and assumed (no, it's not perfect, but
should be good enough):
those starting with a A,K,N,W were US stations
the call area is the physical call area
Taking the LONP list from 5/23 (right before TDW), with that logic I get:
151 (19%) West Coast (Areas 6,7)
493 (62%) East Coast (Areas 1,2,3,4,8,9)

That's a East-to-West ratio of 3.3:1 ... therefore if all things are even,
we'd expect, for any given award, the ratio of East-to-West to be the same.
If it's less, then West is "favored". If it's more, then East is
"favored".

==> I found that (as of 6/21), West has the advantage in 12 awards, while
East only 8.

Here are the E:W ratios per Endorsement:

EAST-Friendly:
9.5 Benelux
7.8 UK
6.0 Central-America
5.0 TRI-WARC
4.8 QCWA
4.2 88 Tri-Band
3.8 QRP
3.4 Maple Leaf
WEST-Friendly:
0.3 China Clipper
0.7 Wrk'd All Oz
1.1 VK
1.9 Aloha
1.9 WALC-NA
2.1 Alaska
2.1 Lower 48
2.7 PSK GOLF
2.8 QRP Tri-Band
2.9 K3VOA
3.0 WAC
3.2 PSK31 Achiever

Ill give you AK, HI and China.

But VK and WAOZ is not that easy from up here in the Pacific Northwest.
Over the last 4 years
in these horrid band condx Ive worked maybe 10-12 VK/ZL.

The DX awards for the last 3 -4 years have been pretty much EU centric. And
EU is darned near impossible right now.
Hungary (HA) and Switzerland (HB)this year
EA, D, I, G, SV, UA, SP. in previous years.

Only ones I have even seen close was JA and PY. but have never seen 20
stations from those two.

Well being a right coaster I would have to say I disagree. We have WALC
but
I do not see WARC. You have Alaska, no counterpart on the right
side. Left
siders have VK, WAOZ, Hawaii and China Clipper, us righties
have benelux,
Hungary, Switzerland, UK and now Baltic. Most of the
others we seem to be
equally accessible. The way I see it the lefties
have 1 over us
righties.

coast.

As a left-coaster in these band conditions, all
I could do when I
read this was
smile. :-)

DX lately has been east of the Mississippi for us. With a beam
at
50ft.

It's gotta get better soon, right?
Right?.....
