As the ARRL promised, a leaderboard and suite of tools to track progress for the Centennial QSO Party are finally online at centennial-qp.arrl.org.
The site lets you see how many W1AW stations you’ve contacted and tracks your point totals for the Centennial Challenge. It’s interesting to see the score breakdowns: For instance I can check the details of my score and see that I’ve worked several past section managers, some ARRL staff members, a handful of QST columnists and everything from official QSL card checkers to plain old ARRL members.
Because I’m a public information officer for our ARRL-affiliated club, I’m worth 12 points to any station that works me. There’s also a callsign search that allows you to lookup point values on any ham.
I believe this site has just launched this week. We’ll see how it goes as the year progresses, but for now, it looks like the ARRL did a fine job.
EDIT: Well I guess I’m late to the party, apparently the leaderboard has been live since the 20th. I don’t know how I missed it considering how many times I jump on LOTW throughout the day.
