[CQ-Contest] Counting DC as a Multiplier and Not as Part of Maryland

Why not add another mult in the NAQP?

Why not encourage more participation in contests?

The Florida QSO Party added DC this year.  So did the Georgia QSO Party.

ARRL DX, ARRL 10, CQ 160, ARRL RTTY are just a few that have
DC as a mult....so it's not something new.

Eric W3DQ is a rock star around the time of the ARRL DX - why?  Because
he gets on the air and hands out a much needed mult from Washington, D.C.
No one would care if he was giving out MD....and he probably wouldn't
turn on the radio either.

The DC mult means more people on the air - that's what we want!
