PACC 2015 results - a visual impression

We have visualized our log data of PACC 2015. It gives a nice impression of how we went on in the 24 hours of the contest (12:00 CET - 12:00 CET)

QSO rate per hour per band
The QSO rate per hour / band shows a 24h clock with a couple of peaks primarily on the low bands. 

Initially we focused on the higher bands. We used 10m sparsely aiming for NA/SA (see map below) in the early evening. We were mainly on 15m and 20m until around 18h CET.

The first peak is around 19h CET on 40m, followed by a peak around 20:30 on 80m. During the night there are smaller peaks on 160, 80 and 40m. After visiting 20m and 15m (aiming for Asia), we ended the contest with another nice run on 40m around 10:30 CET. 

Animation of our contacts logged over the 24h of the contest
The animation above shows you how PE55E went around the globe in the 24h of the contest. The high bands are represented by red (10m), orange (15m) and yellow (20m). While the low bands are represented by green (40m), blue (80m) and black (160m). The stars indicate CW contacts - the dots SSB contacts.
