 From the WPX FAQ

*Can I use different serial numbers on each band?*

    Single operators and multi-single stations must begin with serial
    number 001 and *continue in sequence* for all QSOs regardless of band.

    Multi-two and Multi-unlimited stations must begin with serial number
    001 on each band.

*The rules say to begin with serial number 001. Do I have to send or 
announce the leading zeros in every serial number?*

    No, you do not.  It is only important that you give out a number
    that increases in sequence as you work stations. When you reach
    1000, you should continue sending all 4 digits.
