Historical All Time Highest Scores!

One more Q!


This page lists the best of the best for each of us, based on the values on our Raw Scores page, showing your highest raw score and the year you achieved it for each of the major ARRL and CQ contests since 2015.

As contests approach, whether your goal is to simply beat your previous best, place in the top third, or you have ambitions of dethroning the king, this will be a quick resource to see what it will take!


NEMARC scores and graphs for 2020, courtesy of Tom, KE3GK are here.
