Hi Bob -

I think you'll find that "hunting" for new mults is a losing strategy in 
this contest. There are just to many permutations and combinations of 
prefixes and mults. I imagine that the top operators just work 'em as they 
find 'em and don't worry about mults, only Q's.

As an aside, I also question the real desirability of using a "rare" prefix 
just for this contest. I recall that W4AN had one of the top scores a few 
years ago using that callsign. Of course, having Bill operating made a big 
difference, too!

Good Luck es 73 - John, W4AU
