Just received an email with links to my log analysis for the 2012 CQ WW DX SSB Contest. I did get four hours on during the contest in October: http://k9zw.wordpress.com/2012/10/28/casual-contesting-2012-cq-ssb-ww/
The report provided is an amazing analysis and the CQ WW DX team has really provided some useful feedback.
In my case a few errors cost me nearly one out of five points claimed.
The summary is:
153 Claimed QSO before checking (does not include duplicates)
144 Final QSO after checking reductions
398 Claimed QSO points
330 Final QSO points
84 Claimed countries

Here is a link to a pdf of the entire report analyzing my submitted log: 2012 CQ WWDX K9ZW Log Analysis Report
Even in my casual style of operations for this last CQ WW DX SSB Contest I could have improved if I was certain my call was logged by the other station correctly and if I was a bit more careful in my logging.
Really appreciate the fine analysis!
