I had a two year assignment to Europe in the early 90s, where I held the
call DA1AM. Let me tell you, the adrenalin rush from an almost
inexhaustable number of multipliers on the low bands made the contest really
incredible. Being that far north, you could sometimes get some Auroral effect
on and pick up the continental mults on teh higher bands as well. In any
case, it provided a deep well of scoring opportunities throughout the 48
I've always wondered why we didn't include states as multipliers when we
allow Canadian provinces to be counted.
