OK, you asked for it. Here are the numbers.
3,263 ARCI numbers that I have
1,260 NorCal numbers
604 QRP-L calls (either lots of people didn't sub right or
we have a lot of people working on licenses)
539 belong to both ARCI and NorCal
216 belong to both NorCal and QRP-L
294 belong to both ARCI and QRP-L
164 belong to ARCI and NorCal and QRP-L
I was surprised to see the intersection of the three groups
be a little smaller than I had hoped for.
So, having the data, I ran another series of grep's (UNIX command)
and 'wc' to get the following data. Now I have only US data for
ARCI as evidently Mike B. has a separate dataset for International.
Call Area QRP-L ARCI NorCal
0 52 296 82
1 49 260 54
2 61 270 80
3 48 277 68
4 77 420 86
5 75 388 99
6 80 396 476
7 67 295 135
8 54 337 77
9 37 283 45
This last chart is an approximation as I know there are few hams
who don't live the area where they are supposed to. :-) That
outta start a lively little thread, but don't. :-) It's a joke
Even though CA is known as the land of the kilowatts it looks
like the NorCal group has single handly turned that trend around.
But then again we need the distribution of hams in the US by
call district. It's probably not too out of line.
I found N2CX, NF0R, NK3R, N9RKB, and N2MNN more than once in the
QRP-L listing. Hmmm. Multiple subscriptions? You guys reading
this list at work and at home? :-) Jim E. can fix this.
