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.
