First time I have worked the contest since 2005 and was surprised to be  
called by three of the DC stations on SSB.  Good showing!

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!
