The contest saw nationwide and international challengers, with logs coming in from as far away as Australia. Continental winners included David Burger, VK2CZ, from St. Leonards, NSW, for Australia, Stefania Chiruta, YP9L, from Valea Calugareasca, Romania for Europe, and of course, Joseph Blinick, K1JB, for North America.

National Winners include DL7FB (Germany), VE5BCS (Canada), VK2CZ (Australia), UA3AGW (Russia), SP2RIQ (Poland), YP9L (Romania), and SM5ALJ (Sweden).

Winners per state outside of Maine, include KS4X (Tennesee), WB0IWG (North Dakota), WB6RAB (Florida), K9GDF (Wisconsin), AJ0CM (Minnesota), KE6IUE (California), K9ELF (Indiana), W8KNO (Ohio), W7ON (Arizona).

The overall Maine and Cumberland County winner was K1JB. Other county winners include KB1YYC (Androscoggin), and K1ESE (Oxford).

The categories were won by Kenneth Griffith KS4X, for Single Operator QRP, Dakota Dumont KB1YYC, for Single Operator Low Power, Joseph Blinick K1JB, for Single Operator High Power,  and Thom Watson W1WMG and Tim Watson KB1HNZ, for Multi Operator Single-Transmitter High Power.

The most accurate logs (with over 10 QSO's), include those submitted by KB1YTR, DL7FB, W1CPS, YP9L, and KB1HNZ. On average only 2% of all logs included errors such as miscopied calls and unmatched QSO's.

One thing we noticed, while examining the logs, was a large number of call signs from newly licensed or upgraded hams, especially from the southern states. The most prominent of these new prefixes were KK4 and KC1.

Two logging programs were primarily used to submit logs this year. These include N1MM with the ME QSO Party update, and EI5DI's SD log. Both are available as a free download.

Once again, congratulations to all the winners, and we look forward to hearing from you again next year!
