SAC 2015 – Final Results

We are pleased to announce the final results for SAC 2015. This year we had a small increase in participants on CW, compared to last year. But in the SSB leg we had a drop of almost 300 logs, probably due to the extremely bad propagation. In total we received 1958 logs. sac-award-2015

The SAC award has been re-designed with a new look. Download your own award by simply clicking the rank number in the result listing. To view your or someone else’s UBN, click on the callsign. A PDF Results Booklet will be released in the near future, including the tabulated results, soapbox comments, and longer contest stories and photographs collected from a number of SAC participants.

SAC 2014 Results Booklet and SAC Survey

The SAC 2014 Results Booklet is now available in PDF format (5 Mb) for your reading pleasure, here. It contains the full contest results, along with contest stories written by participants from different parts of the world. Thanks to all who contributed to the booklet, and to Flemming, OZ8XW, for taking care of the layout!
sac-booklet-2014

We’d also like to invite you to take a survey on SAC.
We are eager to develop the contest in the best possible manner, and obtaining your input is crucial to this process. The previous SAC survey from 2012 led to direct changes as inspired by your input, and we feel that now is an opportune time to measure “the pulse” again.

 

 

sac-surevey-2015Please click here to enter the survey, and spread the word to your friends as well. The survey will be available until Sunday, May 10th, after which we will summarize and publish the results.

SAC 2014 – FINAL RESULTS

We are now pleased to announce the final results of the Scandinavian Activity Contest 2014, after a number of adjustments to the preliminary results were made during the five-day review period. We’d like to thank you for your observations, and will continue to work on improving the log checking process and the clarity of the rules text. 

Over 2200 logs were submitted on CW and SSB, signifying a healthy SAC! There is still room to grow, and we will keep looking for ways to increase activity both within and outside Scandinavia to ensure a fun time for all. A PDF Results Booklet will be released in the near future, including the tabulated results, soapbox comments, and longer contest stories and photographs collected from a number of SAC participants.

Season Greetings from the SAC CC

Season Greetings from SAC Contest Committee! Currently we are in the process of checking all the CW and SSB logs. The plan is to have a final result ready in February.

Currently we have re-checked every log and corrected some logs for Cabrillo format errors and other problems. Now will the “detailed” log analysis begin, looking for busted calls, and other things that will affect the final score.

We are happy to welcome a new SAC CC Member: Henning OZ1BII who will replace Peter OZ3ABE. Thanks for all your work Peter and welcome on-board Henning!
