Final on-line log updat.
Our on-line log has just been updated. A total of over 411 000 contacts were made (includes about 130000 QSOs by Polish stations) from June 1 to July 1, 2012.
There are over 59 thousand unique callsign in our on-line log.
There were actually over 420 000 contacts made by the special event stations operating in EFC2012 on the AIR, but some were made before June 1, 2012 so they do not count toward our awards and for this reason are not included in the on-line log.
All logs which I received, both Polish and Ukrainian, were checked with an external logging program and all obvious errors were removed. The logs do not contain any duplicates, but there is no guarantee that there is not a single error in them, it’s not possible to check over 420 000 QSO’s.
We have three logs that we know still contain errors of the type “Band=0” but without the help of the operators it will difficult to be 100% correct, but we are working on making these corrections.
