Fellow Contesters, Through the encouragement of many, I deceided to take on the project of creating a usable web portal for realtime score reporting. The result has been in alpha testing for the past couple of weeks. It will be fully functional for the CQWW SSB and SS CW contests. You can view the portal at History The idea behind this site is based on prior work by Bruce, WA7BMN, with his contest XML dtd, with modifications by N1MMLogger creator, Tom, N1MM. Dave, K1TTT provided a lot of insight. Tested and Ready We have been testing the site with the N1MM logger. The latest version of N1MM fully supports score posting. Marios, 5B4WN/G0WWWW, is working on an upload module for Win-Test and has a beta of it on his site. Open, Programmable API supports a SOAP-based Web Service API. The success of the site will depend on participation and the support of software vendors. There are links on the site for FAQs. Fun for Contesters and Non-Contesters Alike! The viewing site supports many filters, so that you can look at only what you want to look at. Filter by Class, Power, CQ Zone, IARU Zone, State/Prov and lots more. Your filter preferences are saved as a cookie by your browser for up to 7 days. The page automatically refreshes every 1,5 or 10 minutes -- your choice. You can look at overall score or detailed breakdowns, and see where you (or your best friend/worst enemy) stand in real time. Support for all the contests listed on the site will be fully operational soon, as well as an RSS feed. Stay tuned. If you have any questions or suggestions about the site, please send them to me at the email addresses provided on the site, or via As we get closer to CQWW, I'll be looking at the site to ensure it is fully operational under load. It is hosted at a very large facility with high burst-bandwidth capabilities. N1MMLogger (freeware): Win-Test:, the Live Contest Scores Portal: 73, Gerry, W1VE

Thank you for making contesting a more "interactive sport"

I feel we need this and contesters and rules organizers need to embrace Live Scoreboards

I hope that many stations will embrace the use of this tool

Great site! Tried it first time in CQ WW CW. Looks like Writelog poster has a bug, and does not post detailed band data beyond 160 meters (both our and K5ZD's scores displayed 0 an all bands but 160) -- so I could check where my competitors were making Qs in last 5 minutes, and they couldn't ;)

I wish other guys will participate, too.

It was great to see more people posting their scores during the WPX Phone contest

With the ease of use built-in to N1MM and a few other logging tools we should continue to see greater participation.


PS I am looking for one or two ops interested in joining the KG5VK SS Phone Team
