Gee, I read it that you can work XE1XXX, VE3XYZ, K3ZO, and K1KI all on the
same band, each counting for a new mult if they all sign AC.  I'm CCing
K1KI on this, maybe he has some thoughts on this subject.  I'll be gone to
the station to do the contest before I see any replies.  I'm going to log
them just like an HQ station an worry about totalling them after the
contest when we figure out how they count.
