They may have that already, Joe. I’m hoping that one of the more talented among us gens up a log checker for this new, big thing – otherwise all our heads are gonna hurt !!

What if they were to add a x2 mult for just turing the rig on!!!!!!!!
It wouldn't take a Phd in analytical Geometry to compute the award! (cuz I don't have one of those)

OK, Joe – I’ll skip the QSO probability as a function of average ham population density per Maidenhead sub-square calculations then … ;>)

Hi Joe,

It is indeed – and that’s just grid squares such as CM97. When we get down to the sub-square level, say CM97bf, there are 24 X 24 = 576 sub-squares in each grid square and the calculation becomes:

(324 X 100 X 576) X .292 = 5,449,420.8, estimated six-designator grid squares containing some land. Now given that the grid squares are of regular geometric shape and the coastlines are essentially fractals, I would add 10% to this number to account for those sub-squares where a bit of land might be included in an otherwise empty sub-square.

This would bring my estimate up to 5,994,363 – plus 5,637 for all the little islands sprinkled around the globe and I’ll say 6 million sub-squares probably contain some land.

The WAMSSCL ( Worked All Maidenhead Sub-squares Containing Land) Endorsement? That would be really, really big !!

;>)

Let's see: 32,400 grid squares (of the CM97 variety), and 29.2% of the earth's surface is land, so 32,400 X .292 = 9,986.4 squares with land ... more or less.
