MICROWAVE ACTIVITY LEAGUE
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:
The Microwave Activity League Table covers the period
1 January to 31 December each year.It can be accessed as a downloadable
Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet by clicking the link below. The file can be
read in Excel or MS Word.
- to encourage activity across all microwave
- to not discourage those who put in a huge
effort into one band
- to encourage stations with modest equipment
- to avoid making the league yet another contest!
- to make it easy to collect and submit the
The 2005 Table

League Table is open to any microwaver in the world!
To enter the league just email G3PHO with your
activity achievements (see rules below) since 1 January each year.
These should be listed band-by-band from 1.2GHz to 76GHz inclusive.
FOR THE MICROWAVE LEAGUE
FOR EACH BAND ABOVE 1GHz, submit the total number
of callsigns worked between 1 Jan and up to 31 December inclusive,
plus the best DX (in kilometres) worked to date during the year.
Different callsigns include /portable and prefixes for different
countries or states. For example: G3PHO, G3PHO/P, GM3PHO/P, GW3PHO/P, F/G3PHO/P,
etc all count as separate callsigns worked for this table. However a portable
callsign worked from different grid squares and locations can only be counted
once. Thus G3PHO/P can only count as one callsign if it is worked from
IO93, IO92, IO86 etc. Similarly W1XXX, W1XXX/4 (and /5, 6, 7, etc) are
all different calls. So is G/W1XXX/P. To simplify this, just check that
the callsign has extra or fewer characters than normal. If it has,
then it counts as a new call! . However, the best DX can alter
if, for example, GM0XYZ/P moves farther north and you continue working
A combined score from (say) G0XYZ, G0XYZ/P, GM0XYZ/P
and F/G0XYZ/P will be acceptable. i.e. you submit one
entry for ALL your activity no matter where you operate from. However,
if you want to continue to put in separate scores then feel
free to continue to do so.
All modes can be included but you can also submit
a single mode entry such as EME or TV.
Terrestrial repeaters and packet links do NOT count!
The contacts must be made direct if terrestrial. However you can include
satellite and EME contacts.
Satellite contacts count as 300km maximum. Such contacts
also count as 0.5 of a call worked since in effect the contacts are one
way on each band used for the uplink & downlink.
EME contacts count as 1000km maximum.
The algorithm used
to calculate league positions is as follows:
One way contacts score half points - claim as half
a station worked! However, a one way contact cannot be your best DX unless
its your only contact on that band.
No. of Stations
you worked on this Band X Best
DX you Worked on this Band X 1000
Average no. of Stations
worked on this Band Average DX Worked
on this Band
The average number of stations is calculated from
the sum of individual claims divided by the number of operators making
claims on that band.
The average DX worked is also calculated in a similar
manner. The sum of all the best DX's divided by the number of operators
making a claim on that band.
