Contest Maps - 2002 ARRL January VHF Sweepstakes


The following maps were generated from the ARRL's online contest database of results for the 2002 ARRL January VHF Sweepstakes. Callsigns are matched up to ZIP codes using the FCC database, which are then matched up to latitude and longitude (which means that two stations in the same ZIP code will be given the exact same latitude and longitude values.) The mapping software I used only does maps the United States of America, so these maps are limited to only U.S. contestants. Furthermore, these maps only represent U.S. contestants that submitted a log to the ARRL after the contest and who were not operating in the Rover category. (Entrants in the single operator, portable categry are mapped using their callbook ZIP codes, even though they might have operated from another location.) There are certainly many more stations across the country who operate the contest, but do not send in their logs.

The objective of these maps is not to be 100% accurate about the locations, but to give contesters an aggregate visual representation of activity in the contest.

Locations of USA stations that entered the 2002 ARRL January VHF Sweepstakes, color-coded by entry class. Red is single-op portable, green is single-op low power, blue is single-op high power, orange is multi-limited, and purple is multi-unlimited. Again, higher-scoring dots are drawn on top of lower-scoring dots. Rover stations are not included in this map.
