One option is to press Esc (after the ?), or tap a
paddle to do the same thing - however it might cause
a problem when you complete the call and then expect
Enter to send the full exchange.

Dare I suggest sending AX? on the key?   :-)

My understanding is that mults do not count by band,
being simply the total of different stations worked
regardless of band.  In this respect it's the same as
mults in CW WPX.  I know that the 3830 score submission
form expects "mults by band".  It's just that there's
no such thing in this contest.

In these circumstances, what should I do?
