 ```Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable Hi Dan, The question really is, what do you do to maximize mults? Estimate how many QSOs you expect to make and how many mults you expect = to make. Figure you average 3 points per QSO, factoring in 6 points for = JA/EU on 40/80 and 1 point for US QSOs.=20 So, suppose you expect to work 2000 QSOs and 600 mults. 2000 QSOs means = about 6,000 points total. So each QSO would be worth 1800 points and = each mult would be worth 7800 points (a mult is also a QSO.) In this = example each mult is worth 4.3 QSOs.=20 There are a LOT of US mults. Relatively speaking, US mults are worth = more since US QSOs are only 1 point. In WPX mults are a function of QSOs, which is a function of rate and a = good path to high mult areas, EU, US & JA. I wouldn't point my beam = towards Africa in this one. 73, Ken, K6LA, Ken Six Los Angeles K6LA@GTEMAIL.NET -- CQ-Contest on WWW: http://lists.contesting.com/_cq-contest/ Administrative requests: cq-contest-REQUEST@contesting.com ```
