Stations can be worked twice (once on SSB and once on CW) on the HF

Mobile & Rover stations can be worked again when they change 
county/district/regional municipality

Points:  1 point SSB, 2 points CW, 5 points contacts on VHF/UHF bands, 
10 points for contacts with VA3RAC and VE3ODX.

Multipliers: Are claimed on each band.

Outside Ontario stations claim the 48 Ontario 
counties/districts/regional municipalities.

This contest generates some good activity with lots of "multi-county" 
mobiles and rovers planning to "hit the road".
