[CQ-Contest] Georgia QSO Party Scoring with N1MM

I believe I have found an error in N1MM's logging program's computation
of multipliers for Georgia QSO Party. This affects only GA stations. In
some QSO parties, a multiplier of one is given for the first DX QSO or
for the first DX QSO per mode. This is not the case for the GQP. But,
N1MM scores it as if it were. So, for single mode stations who worked at
least one DX QSO, the multiplier is one too high and for mixed mode
stations, it may be two multipliers too high.
This is not extremely significant. It affects only the claimed scores
and you don't actually have to show a claimed score in your log.
However, for those who like to be totally accurate, you should determine
your score without any multiplier for DX stations.
I hope this can be conveyed to N1MM and the programmers for that program
so that it can be corrected before next year's GQP.
The log checking will not be affected (as it is never affected by any
claimed score errors).
Thanks to all who participated despite terrible band conditions on
Saturday and bad weather in many parts of the country.
73, John, K4BAI.
