I have to confess that I didn't study the scoring changes this year until the contest started. Shame on me.

In the past, TDW was a members-only event, and 070 number was the required exchange. You could work each member once per band for QSO points, and the total number of unique 070 numbers was the multiplier. Then you would add the bonus points, 100 per each unique band QSO with a bonus station. To my knowledge there wasn't a power multiplier or advantage.

Now that the contest is open to non-members it was decided not to count 070 numbers as multipliers, so it's just the QSO points plus bonus points. This scoring is more like Field Day, but QSO counts are lower than Field Day QSO counts. Unfortunately that now means that the scoring is completely dominated by the number of bonus station QSOs, as one bonus QSO is worth 100 QSOs with non-bonus stations. 

I have some other thoughts that I'll share privately with club management.

My prop seemed OK, I just thot I had fared better than I did.
Weren't the scores in the past based on power also?

Well don’t feel like the only one on the boat, I was 40th, but I did have an excuse, my mother was getting a pacemaker.  Had to learn all about my station and the device after, joys.
Great contest, poor propagation.

TDW Scorer Question

Bill Garwood
 

Looking at the TDW scores so far this year compared to past years.  This year does not show any multipliers?  Were the scoring rules changed or is there something wrong with the contest scorer for this contest?

 

Enjoyed the contest a lot.  Thanks to all who participated.

Good morning all,
Sorry the TDW seems to be a bust. It's because I didn't play :)
For your info, I will be located at a new QTH in July. 
Grant's Pass, Oregon CN82ik
I hopefully will be back on in a limited capacity by August.

Just finished uploading my log for the contest.  Worked a lot of people I usually work when mobile, so it was a fun contest.  Only worked 3 stations on 80 and heard nothing on 160.  Tried 15 for a bit, but no action either.   It was fun being a bonus station and giving out extra points.

I heard nothing on 10. I put out about 10 calls on 10 and then moved on.

My contest was kind of like one of those fishing trips where on the way home you have to pick up a package of hot dogs for dinner.  Lots of casting but not much action.  Finally just put on a bobber and threw it out there.  Reeled in every once in awhile and threw it in a different spot.  Caught some but there's been lots better days.  But then the worst day of PSK is a lot better than the best day without PSK!  Thanks to all who fished.  Congrats to those with full live wells.  Even when the prop is bad, 070 Club is fun!

That great, Chris.

We don't even have 20M open here in the Pacific NW at this point (15:46z).

It opened a couple of times yesterday briefly, but just enough to see traces with sporadic decode.  The only exception was around 23:58z.  I managed to get three QSOs completed in a couple minutes.  40M opened here for a brief window between 2:30z and 3:10z and I logged three more QSOs.  I have monitored 15m when there was chatter about it on the reflector, but haven't see a trace yet. 

Enjoy your good (or at least, better) fortune with the prop there!  Maybe we'll see another opening today, I hope.
