[CQ-Contest] FD Class D CQ (was: Field Day and contesting...)

Thu Jul 1 02:48:18 PDT 2010

Of course there is no rule against D stations working other D stations
anyway, just that those contacts are worth 0 points... just like stateside
working stateside in CQWW DX, those are 0 points also but you do get the
multipliers.  In FD even though there are not official multipliers you will
hear some stations counting sections, telling you that you are a new section
or a new state for them.  So just work them, log them, and move on.
