For the past umpteenth years, I've tried to persuade the managers of 
those contests that count the 50 United States as separate, unique 
multipliers... but refuse to include the District of Columbia.

One question asked every year is whether I would guarantee that there 
would be participation from DC. I've not been foolish enough to say yes. 
No can make that sort of guarantee, be it DC, SD, WY or another QTH with 
a small number of contesters.

As it happens, the ARRL10 meter contestbrought out nine (9) DC stations, 
from pea-pistols to the big-time ops:


Is that a good enough showing? I'd suggest it is and that it's time to 
includethe District of Columbia as a separate mult to the CQ WW RTTY, 
NAQP and other contests!
