Team C4HQ is very happy to announce they have achieved their goal of 16000 QSO's during the 2015 IARU HF Championship. The team considers this a major achievement given the average propagation conditions. Taking into consideration duplicate calls, the final tally rose to 15563 QSO's, and 38,100,167 points, shattering last year's record of 34 million. Assuming other participants did not do as well, this may well constitute a new all time record!
