Data sources:

The rankings are done according to survey responses by active VHF grid-chasers. The respondents were selected by having confirmed 200 or more grid squares. The three columns are relative to all 488 grid squares in the contiguous 48 states.

This survey is based on data from the Fred Fish Memorial Award leaders. As such, it does not represent any local or general population. Furthermore, it is only for 6-meter activity; we expect the 2-meter wanted-list to be similar but no data is available.

The FFMA "needed grid list" is incrementally updated over time. It will churn as the most needed grids are activated and the leaders are satisfied, and as the population gains new people joining the ranks on the leader board.
